    Kansas' Thomas Robinson had eight boards in the back and forth encounter.

    Tyshawn Taylor made two big free throws and Thomas Robinson finished with 19 points and eight rebounds Saturday night to rally the Jayhawks past Ohio State 64-62 in the Final Four.

    Kansas rallied from 13 points down to complete another comeback in a game the Jayhawks led for a grand total of 3:48 — two of those minutes coming when the score was 2-0.

    Elijah Johnson, whose layup won an equally dicey game against Purdue in the regional semifinals, made one with 1:12 left to put the Jayhawks up 62-59 — their biggest lead of the game.

    Kansas (32-6) plays Kentucky in the final Monday.
