Wildcats Survive, Lock Up Final Four Berth

Kentucky outlasted Michigan thanks, in large part, to Aaron Harrison.
        The Kentucky Wildcats have clinched a berth in the Final Four with a three-point win over second-seeded Michigan.  The eighth-seeded Cats relied heavily on the second half sharp shooting of freshman Aaron Harrison. Harrison was slapped with his fourth foul midway through the second period, but head coach John Calipari made a gutsy call and left him on the floor. Harrison didn't disappoint, draining all four three pointers he attempted, including the go-ahead game winner with 2.3 seconds to play.  Michigan junior Nik Stauskas had a game-leading 24 points, but couldn't get a half court prayer to fall that would have pushed the game to overtime.
        Kentucky advances to face Wisconsin in the Final Four. The Badgers survived an overtime game against top-seeded Arizona Saturday.
