(NEW ORLEANS) — (2) Kansas (32-6) overcame a nine-point second-half deficit to defeat (2) Ohio State (31-8), 64-62 in Saturday night’s NCAA Men’s Final Four Semifinals.
Junior forward Thomas Robinson led the way for the Jayhawks with 19 points and eight rebounds.
“The light came on and then we were much more aggressive the second half,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said after the game. “They missed some shots and we controlled the glass. We’re able to play through our bigs and we were able to get out and run. The biggest thing is, we go stops and we rebounded.”
Kansas will meet Kentucky for the National Championship Monday night in New Orleans.
