Kentucky vs. Florida game thread and pregame reading

The Cats look to bounce back and finish the season strong against the Gators.

NCAA Basketball: Auburn at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action for the final time in this regular season against the Florida Gators. The game is scheduled to start 1:00 pm EST. and you can watch it on CBS, or online at CBS Sports.

After Tuesday’s brutal loss, the Cats are looking to get back on track and end the regular season on a good note. There’s no excuse for blowing a 17-point lead, but it’s better to look at that game as a wake-up call.

The Cats have had trouble pulling away from teams and closing games out all season. The lesson from the Tennessee loss is this — keep your foot on the gas pedal. It seemed like the Cats played not to lose rather than to win. This cannot continue any longer.

A win in Gainesville is not going to be easy. While Florida hasn’t had the season everyone thought they would, they’re still a good team that is more than capable of handing Kentucky their second consecutive loss.

It’s time to finish the season strong! Get ready for the game by checking out some of these pregame reads:
