Aaron Harrison hit yet another game-winning shot Saturday night as Kentucky defeated Wisconsin 74-73 in a Final Four semifinal in the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament in Arlington, Texas.

The 28-footer gave the Wildcats (29-10) the lead with 5.7 seconds remaining, and a berth in Monday night’s championship game, also in Arlington.

Wisconsin, who set a Final Four record by making 19 of their 20 free throws (95%), finished the season at 30-8.

Kentucky will face surprising Connecticut, who knocked out #1 Florida 63-53 in the other national semifinal.  UConn (31-8) shot 55.8 percent (24-for-43) from the floor against a Gators team that was holding their opponents to 39.9 percent.

Florida closed at 36-3.
