We should be in for a thrilling SEC clash tonight, as the Kentucky Wildcats will travel to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators. If Florida is going to pull out a victory, they will have to slow down Kentucky’s potent offense. The Wildcats average 91.3 points per game, which gives them the 3rd best offense in the country. The Gators will put a lot of their defensive focus on Malik Monk, as the freshman guard averages 22.4 points per game (9th in NCAA).
The #8 ranked Wildcats (18-4, 8-1 SEC) have hit a bit of a rough patch, losing two of their last three games. They lost 82-80 at Tennessee and 79-73 to #2 Kansas, before rebounding with a 90-81 win over Georgia. I’m guessing this stretch of lackluster basketball will not be included in John Calipari’s upcoming 30 for 30 documentary.
While Kentucky has been faltering as of late, the #24 ranked Gators (17-5, 7-2 SEC) have been running teams out of the gym. They’ve won their last three games, beating LSU 106-71, Oklahoma 84-52, and Missouri 93-54. That’s an average margin of victory of a whopping 35.3 points.
Now that you have some background information on the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
