Connecticut's upperclassmen were too much for the kids of Kentucky which had an off night shooting the ball.
Poised and experienced, UConn won its second national championship in four years, outlasting Kentucky and its stable of freshmen Monday night.
UConn (32-8) dominated early and seemed to benefited often from some very questionable calls in the game. The Wildcats did what they could to rally but failed to capitalize at the foul line, and had too many empty trips down the stretch.
James Young led Kentucky with 20 points.
Shabazz Napier, the dynamic senior point guard, led the way as he almost always does, finishing with 22 points, six rebounds and three assists to bookend his career with national titles.
