The Kentucky Wildcats get a clutch come-from-behind victory against the Florida Gators, erasing an 11 point second-half deficit, 65-54. Kentucky pushes their win streak to eight games and snaps a two game skid to Florida in the process.

Mid way through the second half, Kentucky looked absolutely out of it, showing no offensive awareness. And then like magic, Kentucky was back in front 50-48 thanks to a Keldon Johnson three and the Wildcats never looked back. Kentucky outscored Florida 34-12 to close out the game.

PJ Washington yet again had himself a night, putting up 15 points and 12 rebounds while Tyler Herro on the road continues to be the biggest cheat code on college hoops. Herro had 19 points and 6 rebounds on 3 of 4 shooting from behind the arc.

The comeback win from this team shows just how much they have matured since the beginning of the season and they’re only growing.

This is also the second time Kentucky has won in Gainesville in the fall season after the football Cats also used a second-half rally to beat Florida. As you can imagine, this is a sweep that hasn’t been accomplished in decades.

Now, on to South Carolina.
