ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Connecticut will not ride a one-man gang into the national championship game this time.

Shabazz Napier is still the leader, but DeAndre Daniels and Ryan Boatright have taken their turns at the wheel.

Daniels carried UConn out of an early funk to finish with 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Boatright gave the Huskies a lift at both ends in a 63-53 victory over Florida in the Final Four Saturday night

Napier was quiet early, but still finished with a steady game, finishing with 12 points and six assists.

But it was Daniels and Boatright who proved to be the difference-makers for the seventh-seeded Huskies (31-8), earning them a spot in Monday's championship game against Kentucky or Wisconsin.
