2014 NCAA tournament: Bracket, scores, stats, records

Full game: Kentucky pulls off upset, ends 2014 Wichita State's pursuit of perfection

UConn won its second national championship in four years in 2014, beating Kentucky 70-64 in the title game.

The Huskies became the first 7-seed to win a championship in tournament history while also playing in a championship game with the highest seed total of all time (15). Senior point guard Shabazz Napier scored 22 against the Wildcats to earn Most Outstanding Player honors.

Kentucky — a No. 8 seed — was the lowest-seeded team to reach the Final Four, joined by No. 1 seed Florida and No. 2 Wisconsin. The Wildcats became just the third 8-seed to play for the national championship since 1985. One of their most notable wins came in the Round of 32, upsetting 35-0 Wichita State. The Shockers were the first team to reach the NCAA tournament unbeaten since UNLV (1991).

UConn and Kentucky were two of five teams seeded seventh or lower to reach the Sweet 16 along with No. 10 seed Stanford and 11-seeds Dayton and Tennessee.
