(UPI) A 3-point shot by Ryan Arcidiacono with 10 seconds left Friday lifted Villanova to a 63-59 victory over No. 2 Kansas in the Battle 4 Atlantis semifinals.
The basket by Arcidiacono gave the Wildcats a two-point lead and pushed them into the finals against Iowa. Kansas will meet Texas-El Paso in the consolation game.
Kansas fought back from a double-digit deficit in the second half and took the lead when Frank Mason completed a 3-point play with 34 seconds remaining.
Arcidiacono, however, hit his huge shot and Mason missed a 3-point try that would have put the Jayhawks back in front.
Mason paced the Jayhawks (5-1) with 12 points.
