LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Julius Mays' two free throws with 9.4 seconds remaining capped Kentucky's comeback from a seven-point deficit for a 61-57 upset of No. 11 Florida on Saturday that revived its NCAA tournament prospects. Archie Goodwin's 16 points led the way in a game that Wildcats coach John Calipari described Friday as "do or die" for his defending national champions. Kentucky needed a signature win to maintain its hopes for an NCAA tournament bid. Kentucky (21-10, 12-6) still needs another win in next week's Southeastern Conference tournament to bolster its bid. The Wildcats outscored the Gators 11-0 over the final 7:28 for their second win over a Top 25 opponent. Murphy's 17 points led Florida (24-6, 14-4), which missed its final 11 shots.
