The Final Four is now set, and Saturday's action will begin with the top-seeded Florida Gators taking on Shabazz Napier and the seventh-seeded Connecticut Huskies at AT&T Stadium. That will then be followed by the second-seeded Wisconsin Badgers facing the eighth-seeded Kentucky Wildcats.

The Gators advanced to the Final Four by virtue of a 62-52 win over the upstart Dayton Flyers, the No. 11 seed who reached the Elite Eight for the first time since 1984. Florida senior point guard Scottie Wilbekin was the star of the show, scoring 23 points in the victory.

Connecticut's unexpected run continued Sunday thanks to a 60-54 win over the fourth-seeded Michigan State Spartans. The Huskies shot just 34.7 percent from the field, but they would get all the offense they would need from Napier, who poured in 25 points on 6-of-14 shooting overall.

Wisconsin pulled out a thrilling 64-63 overtime victory over the top-seeded Arizona Wildcats on Saturday, with Frank Kaminsky putting up 28 points and 11 rebounds. Kaminsky scored six of the Badgers' 10 points in overtime.

Kentucky beat the second-seeded Michigan Wolverines, 75-72, in the Elite Eight on the back of a clutch three-pointer by Aaron Harrison. The Wildcats dominated in the paint and on the boards, winning the rebounding battle 35-24.
