The Cats have now won four straight over the Gators and nine of the last 10.
Playing without their best player in big man Colin Castleton, the Gators put up a fight, coming back from down 15 in the first half to lead by one at the break. In the second half, Kentucky had a 10-point lead with nearly three minutes to go, but the Gators cut it to as small of a margin as two.
Regardless, a win is a win, and Kentucky has now won 3 in a row to move to 19-9 (10-5 SEC).
The Cats are now 3rd in the SEC with a one-game advantage over 4th-place Tennessee.
Overall, a good win last night for Kentucky and it’s always good to sweep a conference rival.
Now, the Cats prepare for a big home showdown with the Auburn Tigers on Saturday.

Big night for Big O.
Kentucky’s Quad 1 record looks a lot better than it did last week.
Four in the first round.
I’m looking at offensive line and special teams.
It’s setting up for some interesting playoff series.
Would you watch it?
Usually not a Wetzel fan, but this is an interesting read.
The million dollar question.
