With Kentucky’s home season in the books, they have one more road test on their schedule.

The Kentucky Wildcats will travel to Gainesville Florida this weekend for their regular season finale with the Florida Gators. The Wildcats (21-9), with a win over the Gators (19-11), would lock up a top-four finish in the SEC.

Kentucky has been on a tear the last two weeks, winning four straight by an average of 16 points. At Florida, however, they’ll be underdogs.

The entire team has been on a role for Kentucky. The Wildcats have gotten consistent scoring from Kevin Knox, all-around consistency from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, shot making from Quade Green, hustle plays from Hamidou Diallo and Jarred Vanderbilt and bench scoring from PJ Washington.

Even sophomore Wenyen Gabriel has been productive, recording arguably his best game of the season Wednesday night.

For the Gators, junior guard Jalen Hudson has had a nice season so far scoring the basketball. He’s averaging 15 points and four rebounds per contest. The Gators hit a bit of a bump in the road a few weeks ago but are coming off impressive wins over both Auburn and Alabama.

A win for the Wildcats would be a ginormous confidence builder, despite their current four-game winning streak. Kentucky blew a late lead to the Gators earlier in January and would love nothing more than to achieve revenge. Florida will surely give Kentucky their all, so it would also be an impressive win for the Wildcats.

Next week, the Cats will have the SEC Tournament in St. Louis. With the SEC being the best it’s been in quite some time, the Wildcats will fully be put to the test before they make their NCAA Tournament appearance.
