The Final Four was set Sunday night when Aaron Harrison made a long 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left and Kentucky beat Michigan 75-72 to join Connecticut, Wisconsin and Florida in the national semifinals.

UConn advanced earlier Sunday with a 60-54 victory over Michigan, getting 25 points from Shabazz Napier to earn the trip to Arlington, Texas, next weekend.

Frank Kaminsky scored 28 points to lead the Badgers to victory in a 64-63 overtime thriller against Arizona in Saturday’s late game. Earlier, Scottie Wilbekin scored 23 points and top overall seed Florida ended the upset dreams of No. 11 seed Dayton with a 62-52 win.

UConn takes on Florida on Friday night and Kentucky’s freshmen go up against Bo Ryan’s Badgers on Saturday night.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas scheduled a news conference for Monday at Allen Fieldhouse with freshman star Andrew Wiggins and coach Bill Self.

Wiggins has already said he plans to enter the NBA draft, though Kansas would not say what the news will be.

The 6-foot-8 Wiggins led Kansas in scoring at 17.1 points per game and averaged 5.9 rebounds. The Canadian was the Big 12 freshman of the year and a first-team all-conference selection.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Repeating a scene from 13 years ago, several hundred Arizona fans and Tucson police clashed in the streets late Saturday following Arizona’s loss to Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament.

Authorities said 15 people were arrested after fans hurled beer bottles and firecrackers at officers, who then used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A year after his gruesome leg injury in the NCAA tournament, Kevin Ware is transferring from Louisville.

Ware became Louisville’s rallying point on the way to the national title after he broke his leg in a win over Duke in the finals of the Midwest Regional last season.

He wasn’t seen with the team over the past several weeks. On Saturday, the day after Louisville’s season ended with a loss to Kentucky, the junior from the Atlanta area announced his decision.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State says guard Tyler Lewis is transferring. Coach Mark Gottfried announced Lewis’ decision Saturday night.
