Well that was fun to watch, wasn’t it? Kentucky put together another strong game taking out the Florida Gators 70-54 to win yet another SEC Tournament Championship. Coming into the game there were a lot of unvoiced concerns over how Kentucky’s depth would effect their performance. With Lamb questionable and a short team playing a third game in three days against a veteran Florida squad, the recipe for a loss was there. Despite a great start, Florida stuck around most of the first half, even taking the lead a few times. They looked poised to do what they had been doing all tournament long – responding to an early deficit with a giant second half to win. However it was Kentucky that had the giant half this time around and took home the hardware. Also, congratulations to Knight, Harrellson, and Miller for making the all tournament team – Miller as the tournament MVP. Who would have guessed Jorts would be there at the start of the year? Madness.
We’ll be bringing you more throughout the day, including a full recap and the brackets as soon as we get them.
Can you feel it? It’s March baby!
