UK Basketball

Top-ranked Florida capped a perfect run through the Southeastern Conference when Kentucky failed to get off a shot on its final possession, allowing the Gators to escape with a 61-60 victory in the league championship game Sunday. Florida (32-2) built a 16-point lead early in the second half, but Kentucky nearly pulled off an improbable comeback to hand the Gators their first loss since early December. Kentucky who dropped to 24-10 was led by Aaron Harrison with 16 points. James Young added 13, while Willie Cauley-Stein had 10 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks.
