Fast break: How Kentucky defeated Wichita State to reach NCAA's Sweet Sixteen

In a tournament that at times has been hard to watch, this one was championship-caliber. Both teams came out sharp and time-after-time responded. The Harrison twins helped UK to a 19-15 lead but the Shockers' execution showed why they were undefeated. Only a late James Young three-pointer kept UK within 37-31 at the half. Julius Randle started the second half in beast mode and UK went on a 10-0 run. A classic followed. The Cats could not stop Cleanthony Early, but UK kept answering and the teams traded leads. There were 19 points (11 by UK) scored in the final four minutes. James Young's three-pointer put UK up for good at 73-71, the Cats made key free throws and Fred VanVleet's last-second three-pointer missed.
