Kentucky vs. Louisville LIVE UPDATES: Final Four Of NCAA Tournament

03/31/2012 03:38 pm ET

Kentucky. Louisville. Rick Pitino. John Calipari. Final Four. Winner adds to their legacy while getting a shot for more in the national championship game Monday night. It's hard to get bigger than that.

The Wildcats, the top seed in the tournament, steamrolled through the South Region flexing their muscles en route to their second consecutive Final Four appearance. Meanwhile, the Cardinals haven't lost since the regular season finale against Syracuse. Louisville, just like UConn last year, went on an incredible run to win the Big East Tournament and then carried that momentum all the way to New Orleans.

Will Rick Pitino, who won a national championship with Kentucky in 1996, get a chance to become the first coach ever to win a title with two different schools? Or will John Calipari get one game closer to his first ever national championship?

@ ESPNAndyKatz :

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Anthony Davis finish this one off. Kentucky on to the national title game to face Ohio State or Kansas.

KG gets around Siva and throws down a two handed dunk over Dieng. But Blackshear makes a 3 on the other end. 67-61 Kentucky with under 30 seconds. But KG gets the loose ball under the basket and slams in another one. This game is over. Louisville taking their time.

@ ESPNAndyKatz :

OK, not usually what you need to do to win if you're Lou, shoot an air ball by Siva after a sweet finish from Davis (assist to MKG).

@ JimmyD_ESPN :

That is what the number one pick in the draft looks like.

03/31/2012 8:18 PM EDT

65-58 Kentucky

wow. KG finds Anthony Davis with an alley-oop pass. Davis slammed it in with one hand. That was probably it. Siva misses badly on a 3 on the other end.

Russ Smith misses the second. 63-58 Kentucky.
