The University of Connecticut men's basketball team defeated the University of Kentucky 60-54 on Monday night to win their fourth NCAA championship.

UConn guard Shabazz Napier was selected as the Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four after getting 22 points and six rebounds in the championship game.
 The Huskies' steely point guard outshined Kentucky's freshmen phenoms in the win. Napier and fellow backcourt mate Ryan Boatright controlled the tempo
and together outscored Wildcats twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison 36-15.
 Napier as a freshman won a national title on UConn's 2011 team led by another
star guard in Kemba Walker.

Back at the school's campus in Storrs, thousands of jubilant students celebrated the win.

  Connecticut didn't wait for the final buzzer to beat Florida this time.

The Huskies, the seventh seed in the East Regional, had outstanding games on both ends of the court to beat overall No. 1 seed Florida 63-53 on Saturday night.

The win ended Florida's 30-game winning streak, which began after the Huskies beat the Gators 65-64 on Dec. 2 on a buzzer-beating jumper by Shabazz Napier.
