Mar 30, 2014

The Kentucky Wildcats started five freshman and fired off a three-point shot in the final seconds to beat the second-seeded Michigan Wolverines, 75-72.

The Wildcats had a 72-67 lead with two minutes left to play, before Michigan fought back and tied the game  at 72.  Kentucky took the lead when they landed a 3-pointer with less than three seconds remaining in the game. 

Kentucky made it to the Final Four with five freshman starters.

The only other team ever to do that was the 1992 Michigan Wolverines, who were known as the Fab Five.

Michigan State University also lost today to Connecticut, finishing the basketball season for both Big 10 schools.
