After their respective wins at the Final Four on Saturday, Monday's national championship game will feature the Connecticut Huskies and the Kentucky Wildcats. Game time is 9:10 p.m. ET and it will be televised by CBS. UConn was the No. 8 seed in the East and Kentucky was the No. 7 seed in the Midwest, making this the title game with the highest combined seeds.
UConn knocked out Florida, the tournament's No. 1 overall seed, 63-53 and never trailed in the second half. The Huskies have won three national championships -- in 1999, 2004 and 2011 -- and have never lost the title game. Connecticut beat Kentucky in the 2011 Final Four en route to its most recent championship.
The Wildcats won a 74-73 thriller against Wisconsin to continue their outstanding tournament run. For the second game in a row, Kentucky's Aaron Harrison hit a three-pointer with only seconds to go, giving his team the win. Last week, Harrison beat Michigan in the Elite Eight with a deep three and he hit one against the Badgers from almost the exact same spot on the left wing with 5.7 seconds remaining.
The Wildcats have won eight national championships -- in 1948, 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998 and 2012 -- the second most in NCAA history behind only UCLA's 11. Kentucky lost the title game in 1966, 1975 and 1997.
