Watch: Luke Maye's shot sends UNC to Final Four

  Luke Maye's 17 points were more than any single UK player, but none were more important than the final two.

A game like that could only end with a play like that.

North Carolina and Kentucky went back and forth, trading runs and blows for 40 minutes in an Elite Eight matchup that lived up to that name in every possible way. 

As it came to a close, one of those runs had the Wildcats back within a basket. And, three months after he hit a last-minute 3-pointer to lift Kentucky over UNC in a 103-100 regular-season blockbuster, Malik Monk again came up big for the Wildcats, draining another three to tie the game at 73 with 10 seconds left to play.

But Luke Maye, the UNC walk-on, had an answer. With 0.3 ticks left, the sophomore drained as deep of a 2-pointer as you can take, sending the Tar Heels to their 20th Final Four, and their second in a row.

Watch the final seconds of the game here:

The Tar Heels will take on 3-seed Oregon in Phoenix on Saturday.
