The Wildcats won by 21 points against Missouri on Saturday, the game after Kevin Knox was mentioned in the FBI report into college basketball’s illegal recruiting practices.
Knox played and played well, scoring 21 points in 24 minutes. The 21-point win was Kentucky’s widest margin of victory in the SEC and against a tournament team in Missouri, no less.
Florida was a mover after it’s 21-point win at Alabama earlier this week. The Gators have won two in a row and are tied with two other teams for third-place in the SEC with this final home game to go.
No team’s NCAA Tournament fortune will have more to do with the other teams in its region than Florida’s. Then again, I’m not even sure what sort of team is the best matchup for Florida, or the worst.
Surely, a team that can kill it inside is a bad matchup. But often, there is a trade-off and the Gators can take that team for a spin on the perimeter.
I guess the team it doesn’t want to see is one with a dominant big that can also hold its own outside — defensive-minded guards and bigs that can crash the offensive glass.
The opposite sort of team will lose by 30 to the Gators: one that has big, clumsy forwards, who won’t assert themselves offensively and will be a liability defensively. Those teams are becoming increasingly rare, though.

Free Kentucky Wildcats vs. Florida Gators NCAAB Prediction: Kentucky gets the best of Florida inside, wins on the road.
I like UK — athletic enough to contain Florida on the perimeter and big enough to give it problems inside. This is a game where the raw talent plays a big part.
