Foul issues help end Kentucky's season shy of Final Four

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Foul trouble stymied Kentucky in the first half. A North Carolina zone caused issues in the closing minutes.

Even with those hurdles, North Carolina needed a jumper from Luke Maye with 0.3 seconds left to end the Wildcats' season, eliminating Kentucky 75-73 in the South Region final of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.

Kentucky guard Malik Monk had just knocked down the second of his two 3-pointers inside the final 40 seconds, this one with 7.2 seconds remaining. Maye's shot left Kentucky only a final gasp that never materialized as senior Derek Willis' length of the court pass sailed out of bounds.
