Shabazz Napier scored 22 points and Connecticut won its second NCAA title in four years, beating all those Kentucky freshmen in the championship game.

Napier is among three U-Conn. seniors who were part of the Huskies’ 2011 title. That trio stayed after coach Jim Calhoun’s retirement even when the Huskies were ineligible for the NCAA tournament last season.

They came back strong in Coach Kevin Ollie’s second season, and the Huskies went all the way to their fourth overall title.

Kentucky, with five freshmen starters, never led in the championship game.

The Wildcats missed 11 of 24 free throws, while the Huskies were perfect on 10 tries.

VCU (23-10) was firmly in control for most of the second half before SFA (32-2) rallied in the closing seconds. Haymon hit one of the biggest - and most improbable - shots of what's already been a wild March, knocking down a 3-pointer and a free throw after being fouled

Chasson Randle scored 23 points to help Stanford hold off a furious second-half rally by New Mexico and pull off the first-round upset with a 58-53 win. The 10th-seeded Cardinal built a 20-5 lead in the game's early moments before New Mexico stormed back to tie the game late in the second half behind Cameron Bairstow's 24 points. But a Randle three-pointer sparked a 7-0 run that helped Stanford pull away.

Anthony Gill scored 17 points to help No. 1 seed Virginia pull away late and beat Coastal Carolina 70-59 on Friday night, avoiding a historic upset in the NCAA tournament. The Cavaliers trailed by 10 in the first half and five at halftime to the 16th-seeded Chanticleers before pushing ahead for good with about 9 minutes left.

A No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1 since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, and the Cavs (29-6) rallied in the second half to make sure they didn't become the first victims of the ultimate upset.

They entered the tournament having lost three of five to fall out of the national rankings, and shot 49 percent in this one but struggled to put the ninth-seeded Colonials away until the final seconds.

Isaiah Armwood scored a season-high 21 points after playing the final 12 minutes with four fouls for ninth-seeded GW (24-9), which was just 2 of 12 from 3-point range yet never fell behind by more than 10 points. Leading scorer Maurice Creek — who averages 14 points — finished with nine on 2-of-13 shooting for GW, but he airballed a 3-pointer in the final seconds that would have tied it.

Wesley Saunders led the Crimson (27-4) with 12 points as Harvard pulled off an upset for the second straight year. Last year, Harvard upset New Mexico as a 14 seed.

James Michael McAdoo sank two free throws in the final 3.5 seconds, and No. 6 seed North Carolina rallied to beat 11th-seeded Providence 79-77 Friday night.

Providence’s Bryce Cotton scored a career-high 36 points and made one dazzling shot after another down the stretch. But he also fumbled a long rebound in the final moments, robbing the Friars of a chance for a last-second miracle. Had North Carolina (24-9) lost, it would’ve been the first time since 1979 the Tar Heels and rival Duke lost on the same day of the tournament.

Georges Niang scored 24 points to lead third-seeded Iowa State as the Cyclones pulled away from No. 14 North Carolina Central in the second half for a 93-75 win Friday night in the East Region.

The Big 12 tournament champions found themselves in an early struggle with a program making its first NCAA tournament appearance in just its third year as a full-time Division I program. But the Cyclones' quickness and balance eventually took over.

The Hawks played all five of their starters the entire second half until Halil Kanacevic fouled out in overtime. Senior Langston Galloway scored a game-high 25 points for St. Joseph's who hasn't won a tournament game since 2004.

Anthony Gill added 13 points for the Cavaliers (30-6), who turned in a dominating performance while controlling the tempo and shutting down the eighth-seeded Tigers (24-10) at nearly every turn. Virginia led by 15 at halftime and pushed that to 27 points late, picking right up where it left off in its strong finish to Friday's tournament-opening win against Coastal Carolina.

what has already been the program's most successful season in decades, Virginia added another milestone: its first regional semifinal appearance since making it to a regional final in 1995. And the Cavaliers, carrying a No. 1 seed for the first time since the days of Ralph Sampson, look ready to go even farther.

A back-and-forth thriller ended in fitting fashion, as DeAndre Kane scored a go-ahead lay-up with two seconds to play in San Antonio Sunday evening. Kane's 24 points and six assists led the Cyclones, who face Connecticut in the Sweet 16, their first Sweet 16 since 2000.

The top-seeded Cavaliers butted heads with Big Ten powerhouse Michigan State, and the Spartans proved too much to overcome as Virginia's unforgettable campaign comes to an end in the round of 16 at Madison Square Garden.

The Cavaliers' best season in 30 years -- which included an ACC regular-season title, a conference tournament championship (their first since 1976) and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament -- should make Friday's defeat easier to swallow. Joe Harris finishes his Cavaliers career with a team-high 17 points, a total matched by teammate Malcolm Brogdon.

DeAndre Daniels scores 19 of his team-high 27 points in the second half as No. 7 seed U-Conn. holds off No. 3 seed Iowa State to advance to the Elite Eight a year after being banned from the NCAA tournament.

The Huskies, the 2011 champions, watched a 17-point lead dwindle to four with 2 1/2 minutes to go at Madison Square Garden, but the Huskies kept their cool to take out the Cyclones. Dustin Hogue scored a career-high 34 points for Iowa State, but Big 12 player of the year Melvin Ejim finished with just 7 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

Shabazz Napier scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half, and U-Conn. beat Michigan State, 60-54, to return to the Final Four a year after the Huskies were barred from the NCAA tournament.

Napier, the East Regional's most outstanding player, hit three huge free throws with 37.6 seconds left at Madison Square Garden to carry U-Conn. to the Final Four. The Huskies rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to become the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.

Fourth-seeded Michigan State's seniors become the first four-year players recruited by Tom Izzo to fail to reach the Final Four. Gary Harris led the Spartans with 22 points.

Connecticut beat overall No. 1 seed Florida 63-53 in the Final Four behind DeAndre Daniels' 20 points and 10 rebounds, handing the Gators just their third loss this season. The victory got the Huskies into the title game against Kentucky and it was as good an effort as any team came up with this season against the Gators, who came in having won 30 straight games, a streak that started after a loss to the Huskies four months ago.

Shabazz Napier, who leads the team in almost every category, finished with 12 points and six assists. He got the better of Scottie Wilbekin in a matchup of senior point guards, both conference players of the year. Napier had two key second-half steals on Wilbekin, both of which led to UConn baskets.

The Huskies, the seventh seed in the East Regional, will meet Kentucky, the eighth seed in the Midwest, on Monday night. There have only been two No. 8 seeds to reach the championship game since the field expanded in 1985 - Villanova in 1985 and Butler in 2011. Connecticut is the first No. 7 seed to reach the title game.

Arizona (31-4) fell into an eight-point hole in the opening minutes to give the 16th-seeded Wildcats hope of a monumental upset. The desert Wildcats tried to squash the dream quickly with two big second-half runs, but Weber State fought its way back from a 21-point deficit to make it close in the second half. Davion Berry had 24 points to lead Weber State (19-12) in its first NCAA tournament appearance since 2007.

The Bulldogs (29-6), in their 16th straight NCAA tournament, will play top-seeded Arizona on Sunday. The refs called 61 fouls, and five players fouled out. Pangos made 12 of 14 free throws, most of them in the closing minutes. Smart had 23 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and six steals for Oklahoma State (21-13). He is projected to be a high NBA draft pick, despite passing up the NBA draft last year. The Cowboys won five of seven games coming in, a run that coincided with Smart’s returning from a three-game suspension for shoving a Texas Tech fan.
