Kentucky and Florida meet for the third time this year; Florida expects a differ
Print this page

Billy Donovan isn’t taking any chances this time, against the #1 ranked Wildcats.  Florida fired early with the three and dropped the ball in low for a quick two.  A strong man-to-man defense pressured the Cats to play harder and faster than the Gators.   

Patrick Young and Anthony Davis are matched-up under the basket, although Florida is shooting the three very well.  Kentucky will need to improve their outside defense to be effective in the second half. 

Lamb is taking care of the jump shot, while Kidd-Gilchrist and Teague have been rather quiet.  Miller subbed in early as did Kyle Wiltjer, with limited results.  Florida is taking control, putting up the points early. 

Billy Donovan and John Calipari are rotating their line-ups in anticipation of a fast game.  Wiltjer nailed a three with 6:17 to play, followed by a block by Davis, and 2 points of a fast break by Teague. Florida shot an impressive 45.5% 3FG compared to UK at 33.3%.  Kentucky outshot Florida 58.1% to 48.5% on field goals. 

Looking to second half, Kentucky will need to defend the perimeter and make the three to advance to the finals.
