Jared Harper Cameron Johnson-032719-GETTY-FTR

Tyler Herro hit a 3-pointer with 25.8 seconds left to give Kentucky the lead after Houston had erased a double-digit lead, and the Wildcats escaped their NCAA Midwest Regional semifinal with a 62-58 win over Houston Friday night.

A ticket to the Final Four will get punched as Auburn and Kentucky are set to square off. Okeke led his team with 20 points and 11 rebounds prior to suffering a leg injury late in the game. Props to coach Bruce Pearl for empowering his team to this historic run.

"Chuma", Brown said. "I feel like that was on our mind the whole entire game".

Well, when the Tigers edged out Kentucky, 77-71, in overtime to reach the first Final Four in school history, Barkley was understandably emotional. "We stayed together to continue to do what we did, and we had a great second half". Four consecutive free throws gave the Wildcats the lead with just over two minutes left.

Kentucky's PJ Washington, who began the NCAA Tournament on the bench due to a foot injury, scored 28 in the loss.

So, as soon as the ball tipped off, Auburn started jacking up threes, and they watched as the majority of them went in.

But the Argentina forward was then withdrawn early in the second half. However, City will have a game in hand after the Liverpool match.

Leading scorers junior guard Jared Harper and senior guard Bryce Brown carried the weight, scoring 26 and 24 points, respectively.

He will be with the team in Kansas City when Auburn takes on Kentucky in the Elite Eight looking to advance to the Final Four.

The Tigers trailed by as many as 11 in the first half but used an 11-4 run to close the gap to 35-30 at halftime, despite shooting 3-for-11 from 3-point territory and failing to have one player in double digits. "We didn't think he was going to play that much".

"When it gets tough and you got to match up, we got five, and you don't". Davis then muscled a shot over Reid Travis in the lane with 3:39 left for the Cougars' first lead since 13 minutes left in the first half.

Kentucky: The Wildcats look formidable now that Washington is back. Auburn could have won the game in regulation, but Horace Spencer missed a hard three-point shot on the final possession.
