UCLA and the University of Florida emerge from the Final Four, ending the runs of two lower-seeded teams in the NCAA tournament.

Florida handily ousted Cinderella team George Mason, 73-58, while UCLA's defense stifled LSU to win, 59 to 45. Florida and UCLA play in the championship game Monday in Indianapolis.

The women's NCAA Championship finalists will be determined when their Final Four games get under way in Boston. The quartet of teams includes three from the Atlantic Coast Conference — Maryland, Duke and North Carolina — and LSU.

Liane Hansen speaks with Boston Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan.
