The Kentucky Wildcats celebrate with the trophy after defeating the North Carolina Tar Heels in the east regional final of the 2011 NCAA men’s basketball tournament at Prudential Center on March 27, 2011 in Newark, New Jersey.

John Calipari has restored the roar at Kentucky, leading the Wildcats back to the Final Four after a 13-year absence.

Brandon Knight scored 22 points and the fourth-seeded Wildcats are headed back to college basketball’s biggest stage following a 76-69 win over second-seeded North Carolina on Sunday in the East Regional final.

The Wildcats (29-8) will play Connecticut in Houston on Saturday night after turning back a late surge by the Tar Heels (27-10), who erased an 11-point deficit before running out of gas in the final 2 minutes.
