Kentucky 74-73 over Wisconsin, to play for title

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Aaron Harrison hit a 3-pointer with 5.7 seconds left, after taking a pass from his twin brother Andrew, and Kentucky beat Wisconsin 74-73 on Saturday night to advance to the national championship game.
  
The Harrison twins and all those Kentucky freshmen aren't one and done just yet.
  
They will be playing for the Wildcats' ninth national championship Monday night in an unexpected title matchup.
  
Eighth-seeded Kentucky (29-10) will play seventh-seeded Connecticut (31-8) in the highest combined seed total for a national championship game since seeding began in 1979. The previous was the 2011 game when third-seeded UConn beat eighth-seeded Butler.
  
After Aaron Harrison hit another clutch shot, Traevon Jackson's pull-up jumper for the Badgers (30-8) hit the backboard and rolled off the rim as time expired.
