Florida distributed these flyers to the Rowdy Reptile section before the game to try and rattle them. Obviously it didn’t work but it was a good try. This was a pretty organized event. No one is playing better basketball than Kentucky right now and Anthony Davis is a monster.

ESPN has a commercial advertising its mobile platforms, and the ad features an exciting clip from the Indiana-Kentucky game in December. Most people probably don’t think twice about the ad, but apparently it’s motivated the Wildcats.
Kentucky is the No. 1 team in the country and 30-1 on the season. The commercial plays Indiana’s buzzer-beating three pointer that won the game...
Florida Gator junior guard Kenny Boynton spent some time with the media Monday discussing what the gators have to do to get away from their three game losing streak. The SEC tournament is upon them and finishing strong would mean getting a win in game one and pulling off an upset over Kentucky in game two of their tournament run. It won't be easy, but Boynton says it can be done.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Top-ranked Kentucky is perfect again in the Southeastern Conference. Freshman Anthony Davis had 22 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks, Terrence Jones added 19 points and the Wildcats capped a perfect season in league play with a 74-59 victory over No. 16 Florida on Sunday.
Patric Young’s ankle has done plenty of damage this year. When it was keeping his minutes limited in games, it hurt the Gators in the paint with no strong defensive presence to play opposing big men. With the ankle now completely healed, it still managed to do damage mentally. The mental part of the game was the hardest for Young to overcome, but he showed signs of life Sunday against Kentucky.
The trouble Florida has experienced from Kentucky in recent years isn’t a coincidence. Besides the obvious talent the Wildcats have added in recent years, the Gators have struggled with long, athletic guards. That’s what happens when the backcourt is undersized. Erving Walker has struggled to get his shots off against the UK because of the Wildcats' aggressive defense.
