2012 Final Four: Kentucky Tops Louisville, Advances To Title Game

If you watched then Kentucky Wildcats as they made their way through the South regional to advance to the 2012 Final Four, then you're probably not surprised. The Kentucky Wildcats survived a comeback attempt from the Louisville Cardinals, winning 69-61 and advancing to the national title game.

Once again, Kentucky was led by Anthony Davis, who had a monster game for John Calipari's Wildcats. Davis finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks -- all team highs for Kentucky.

The Wildcats found themselves up by as many a 13 points in the second half, but the Cardinals came all the way back to tie the game at 49 with just over nine minutes to play in the second half. From there, it was all Wildcats though, as Kentucky went on a 20-12 run to end the game and inch closer to a national title.

Kentucky will take on the Kansas Jayhawks on Monday night in the title game. Tip off is scheduled for 9:23 p.m. ET.
