‘Cats Run the Table in SEC Play

After a decisive 74-59 victory over the Florida Gators in Gainesville, this afternoon, the Kentucky Wildcats have now run through the Southeastern Conference undefeated. It’s only the third time since 1956 that an SEC team has run the conference table in the regular season. Who were the other teams? Well…Kentucky in 1996 and Kentucky in 2003. Behind a deceptively quiet 22 points from Anthony Davis and a resounding and welcome 19 from Terrence Jones, Kentucky closed off driving lanes, set up housekeeping in the half court, and smartly adjusted to Florida’s lightning fast transition offense to run its record to 30-1 and 16-0 in the SEC. Big Blue’s 30 wins are the most ever recorded in the regular season in the school’s history. It was an impressive performance, not particularly flashy. And maybe Davis’s output was lowkey because his thunderous dunks are met with wild cheering in Rupp Arena, but crickets and dread on the road. So now, the ‘Cats will gear up for the Southeastern Conference tournament in New Orleans, which begins Thursday. UK is the #1 seed and has a first-round bye–they’ll play Friday at noon against either LSU or Arkansas.
