For the first time in history a No. 11 seed will face a No. 8
seed in the NCAA Final Four, providing a first-class opportunity in long-shot
odds for NCAA basketball

that the last time these two teams faced each other in November of last year at
the Maui Invitational, UConn trounced Kentucky 84-67 with a big 29 on the board
