Gators ready to take on Kentucky
GAINESVILLE, Fla.--The Stephen C. O'Connell Center is silent, but there is great anticipation for the sold out tip with Kentucky at 7:00. It's a matchup of the 7th ranked Gators and the 25th ranked Wildcats in a rivalry that has been one sided with the last five meetings going Kentucky's way.
Billy Donovan is concerned about the length and height of the young Cats. Florida is learning about life without Will Yeguete who is out until at least the SEC tournament after knee surgery. Yeguete is the second leading rebounder and a big part of the pressure defense.
Florida is 3-1 against ranked opponents this season and 3-0 at home. Kentucky has won five straight games after a slow start. The Gators are coming off a 15 point win over Mississippi State where Michael Frazier scored 11 points in his first career start.
We will have the post game reaction on Action News tonight.
