Kentucky officially owns the Sunshine State.
The Kentucky basketball team’s 65-54 win clinched a clean sweep in Gainesville for the Cats in the two major sports. Five months ago Mark Stoops’ Wildcats defeated Florida 27-16 in The Swamp.
Kentucky has not defeated Florida in football and basketball in Gainesville since the 1979-80 season. In Fran Curci’s seventh season as UK’s head coach, Kentucky dominated Florida 31-3 in the penultimate game of the season. Less than two months later, Kyle Macy had 11 points and 7 assists to propel Joe B. Hall’s Wildcats to a 76-63 victory.
In this season’s edition of the Florida basketball and football sweep, each team won by 11 points in Gainesville.
