Kentucky plays their final home game of the season today, hosting the Florida Gators (17-13) this afternoon at 1 p.m.
It is Senior Day for two Wildcats, Reid Travis and Jonny David. David will get the starting nod in an exciting moment for him and his family, but for Travis, his status is still up in the air following the knee injury last month.
My guess is Travis could play limited minutes as he tries to knock the rust off and get ready for the SEC Tournament. Speaking of that, a win coupled with a Tennessee loss to Auburn would give Kentucky the #2 seed in the SEC Tournament. We are now all Auburn fans!
With Florida, this game is the rematch of the Kentucky win in Gainesville in early February, in which the Wildcats suffocated the Gators defensively in the second half en route to a 65-54 victory.
The game will mean a lot to Florida as they search for quality wins on their NCAA Tournament resume, but ultimately this is a game the Wildcats should win in Lexington and send the seniors as well as the freshmen and sophomores who will be playing in their last game in Rupp, off with a bang.
Time to take care of business.

“If this was Kentucky and John Calipari, you know the [NCAA] would have already done something about it”.
I’m not the biggest Stephen A. fan, but he isn’t lying.
I hope Jonny David drops 20 today.
We still aren’t sure if Travis will see any minutes today.
I repeat, I want Jonny David to drop 20 points today.
