MEMPHIS, T.N. — North Carolina is back in the Final Four, thanks to — surprise! — Luke Maye.
The sophomore reserve hit the winning shot with 0.3 seconds left for a 75-73 win against Kentucky in the South Region championship game. It was part of a huge performance for Maye, who scored 17 points on 6-for-9 shooting.
Maye’s shot came seconds after Malik Monk hit a 3 to tie the game in a wild finish between the region’s top two seeds.
North Carolina will take on Oregon in the Final Four.
