UConn's title shoots it up UPS Index, but Arizona holds on to final top spot

(AP) -- Perhaps the only thing preventing Connecticut from eventually taking over the top spot in the UPS Team Performance Index was the season coming to an end.

In the culmination of a pair of road-to-the-title game runs few saw coming, the seventh-seeded Huskies bent but never broke against No. 8 seed Kentucky, holding on to win 60-54 on Monday night for their fourth national championship in 16 years. In the process, UConn moved up to a season-high 14th in the final Index.

Arizona was able to maintain its season-long hold on No. 1 due in large part to the Huskies' upset of Florida in the national semifinals. The Gators finished a close second, with Wichita State, Louisville and Virginia rounding out the top five.
