A quick summary of Florida's 84-65 victory over Kentucky in Gainesville, Fla., on Saturday:
This was senior execution (Florida) against freshman uncertainty (Kentucky). A nice second-half 15-0 run by Kentucky prevented it from being an embarrassment. On Senior Day, Florida needed a win to finish 18-0 in the SEC. Kentucky was hoping to show this is not a season falling apart. It came easy for the Gators. Patric Young had his way inside and the Gators were left wide open from three-point land. UK's offense continued to have no flow. A 20-16 Gators lead was suddenly 44-22. Kentucky was outmatched. Bad shooting and turnovers led to a UK meltdwon and 49-28 Gators halftime lead. Julius Randle put UK on his back to start the second half and the Cats were within 53-47. The Gators' experience took over and UK never seriously threatened.
