Unlike most meetings between the Cats and the Gators, there is not a ton of hype entering the matchup at the O’Dome.  The environment will be unforgiving.  Here are the numbers that will decide today’s outcome.

1.9 — Ashton Hagans’ assist-to-turnover ratio. He has as many steals (45) as turnovers.

3 — Florida Gators shoot over 50 percent of their shots from behind the three-point line.  The Gators have also won three straight games.

4-6 — John Calipari’s record at the O’Dome as UK’s head coach.  Mike White is 3-3 vs. UK.

5 — Straight games the Cats have covered.  The spread has been bet up a point to UK -3.5.

10 — Florida ranks tenth in KenPom in defensive efficiency.  They’ve held seven opponents to 56 points or less.

11 — Florida is currently projected as an 11-seed in the play-in game by Joe Lunardi.  After today, the Gators’ only opportunity for a signature win at home is against LSU.

20 — P.J. Washington has scored more than 20 points in three straight games.

40.4 — Percent of Florida’s points come from behind the three-point line, ranked 18th in the country.  UK opponents make 36 percent of their three point attempts (but only 31.3 over the last three games).
