Florida pulling away and Gators on verge of impressive road win at UK. Only two losses came without Wilbekin on court. No glaring weakness.- Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) February 16, 2014

Courier-Journal Kentucky beat writer Kyle Tucker:
Kentucky, the best offensive-rebounding team in the country, still has none. Still down 17-16, 7:44 first. Shooting 6-12 to UF's 7-20.- Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) February 16, 2014

At Gator Dockside watching the Gators with @AlexMurphy5 @lembree888 and @MarathonAndy10- Erik Murphy (@e_murphy31) February 16, 2014

I see one Florida player not intimidated by UK's size. Casey Prather.- Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 16, 2014
Kentucky getting back on defense and making Florida work for baskets. Not giving up any of the easy stuff LSU, Miss State and others got.- Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 16, 2014
Willie Cauley-Stein fast start. He's had some no-shows in recent weeks but looks engaged tonight. UK has Gators thinking too much in paint.- Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 16, 2014
CBS college basketball reporter Jeff Borzello:
Kentucky is giving Florida open jumpers from the perimeter. Gators not hitting. Achilles heel offensively.- Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) February 16, 2014
Every time it seems like Kentucky is ready to go on a run or the crowd is getting into it, Florida seems to find a way to get an easy layup.- Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) February 16, 2014
Dorian Finney-Smith is shot-faking Julius Randle all over the place.- Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) February 16, 2014

ESPN's Colin Cowherd:
When media mention great college bb coaches why isn't Billy Donovan on that list ? Two titles and consistent winner at football first univ— Colin Cowherd (@ESPN_Colin) February 15, 2014
