UK's Anthony Davis selected MOP of Final Four

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Kentucky's Anthony Davis has been selected the Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four after dominating defensively in Monday night's NCAA championship game.

The freshman forward had a rough night on offense, scoring six points on 1-of-10 shooting. He made up for it with defense, tying a championship game record with six blocked shots and altering several others in Kentucky's 67-59 win over Kansas.

Davis, who set an NCAA freshman record with 186 blocked shots, helped Kentucky hold the Jayhawks to 35 percent shooting. He also had 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals in leading Kentucky to its eighth national title and first since 1998.

He was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Doron Lamb, along with Kansas' Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor.
