LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Arizona guard Gabe York remembers having the ball in his hands, taking a couple of dribbles and failing to get a shot off before time expired.

Wisconsin 64, Arizona 63, in overtime.

The Badgers advanced to the Final Four for the first time under coach Bo Ryan a year ago, and the Wildcats went back to the desert, unable to deliver the same first appearance for coach Sean Miller.

Now, they're going to do it again, with a few differences.

This time, the Badgers (34-3) are the top-seeded team, led by 7-footer Frank Kaminsky. The Wildcats (34-3) are a No. 2 seed, a spot lower than last year, and Pac-12 player of the year Nick Johnson, who launched a desperate shot just after the buzzer, has graduated.

The stakes are just as big: a trip to Indianapolis awaits the winner.
