NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP-KENTUCKY
Missed free throws prove costly as Kentucky falls to Connecticut 60-54 in national title game

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 11:27 PM EDT
ARLINGTON, Texas


Another team coached by John Calipari was done in by the free-throw line.

That harmless strip of paint just 15 feet from the basket.

After shooting well there much of the season, the young kids from Kentucky wilted when it mattered most Monday night. Their inability to make one of the simplest shots in basketball was a big reason why they lost 60-54 to Connecticut in the national championship game.

Kentucky was just 13 of 24 from the foul line, and missed its final three attempts, when the game was hanging in the balance.

It brought back memories of the 2008 title game, when a Memphis team coached by Calipari was unable to make free throws when it mattered in an overtime loss to Kansas.
