At Memphis, Tennessee:

In Sunday's final of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament's South Region, Luke Maye (who scored 17 points) hit a jump shot with 0.3 seconds remaining as the top-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels (31-7) defeated the second-seeded Kentucky Wildcats (32-6) 75-73 to advance to their record 20th Final Four.

The Tar Heels took control by scoring 12 unanswered points over the game's final five minutes.

Justin Jackson led UNC with 19 points.

The Heels will take on Oregon in a Final-Four national semifinal on Saturday at Glendale, Arizona.
