                    Final Score: Connecticut 60, Kentucky 54
 
 Arlington,  TX  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Shabazz  Napier  scored 22  points  and
 Connecticut  finished an improbable run through the NCAA Tournament by beating
 Kentucky  60-54  on Monday night  to win the  fourth national title in program
 history,  all in the  last 16 years. The Huskies, the first No. 7 seed ever to
 play  in  the national final,  never trailed and  survived a 19-5 Kentucky run
 spanning  the  first and second  half. Ryan Boatright,  who stayed in the game
 despite  rolling his  left ankle late in  the second half, added 14 points for
 the  Huskies (32-8)  and Niels Giffey scored  10. James Young had 20 points to
 lead  Kentucky  (29-11) and  leading scorer Julius  Randle contributed 10. The
 Wildcats,  who came  out of the Midwest  Region as a No. 8 seed, trailed 30-15
 with  six minutes left in the first half and were only able to pull within one
 point  several  times in the  second half, never  tying the game. The Wildcats
 were trying to win their second title in three years and ninth overall.
