UConn Wins NCAA Title

Connecticut has won its second NCAA men's basketball title in four years, beating Kentucky 60-54 in the championship game Monday night. Shabazz Napier scored a game-high 22 points, and he is one of three UConn seniors who won the title back in 2011 as well. Whatever the outcome, it was guaranteed that the champion this year would be the lowest seed to win the title since eighth-seeded Villanova did in 1985, because UConn was seeded seventh and Kentucky, with five freshmen starters, was eighth, and never led in the game. The defeated Wildcats also missed 11 of 24 free throws, while the victorious Huskies were 10 for 10.
