ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Florida played its worst game of the season on college basketball's biggest stage.

And the team's backcourt had a lot to do with it.

Southeastern Conference player of the year Scottie Wilbekin and guards Michael Frazier II and Kasey Hill struggled in a 63-53 loss to Connecticut in an NCAA semifinal Saturday night. It ended Florida's season and school-record, 30-game winning streak.

Wilbekin finished with four points and just one assist for the Gators (36-3). Frazier hit a 3-pointer off the opening tip, but did little else the rest of the way. Hill scored seven points and was in foul trouble.

On the defensive end, the three guards were no match for UConn's Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright. The Huskies duo combined for 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
