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).
