Florida introduced Kentucky basketball to the enemy Saturday, and it’s wearing Big Blue.

Kentucky basketball is tied for third in the SEC with Tennessee. If you put a hundred bucks on Kentucky landing in third place in the SEC seven games into conference play, go to the bank and pay off the car.

Nevertheless, the Cats are still only two games out of first place.

The Cats are also only two games out of last place.

Kentucky basketball and last place in the same sentence. If you bet on that, you can go play off the house.

After Florida guard Chris Chiozza sliced and diced the Cats with 13 points, six rebounds, eight assists, and just one turnover before stealing an inbound pass to seal the Gator win in Rupp Arena on National Cheese Day – Chizz Day in Gainesville, the Cats sport a two game losing streak.
