When they meet in the SEC semifinals today at 1 p.m. ET here in New Orleans, Kentucky and Florida know the other all too well. This will be their sixth fifth meeting in just a little over a year. Kentucky has won the previous five four, starting with a 76-68 win in Rupp Arena on Feb. 26 of last year. The Cats then beat the Gators 70-54 in the finals of the SEC Tournament in Atlanta. This season, UK beat Florida 78-58 in Rupp Arena on Feb. 7, then 74-59 in Gainesville just last Sunday.

To win a sixth straight over Florida, the Cats may have to get a better game from Darius Miller, who went scoreless against LSU on Friday. Miller scored 15 points and grabbed six rebounds in last year’s conference title game win over Billy Donovan’s club. He had scored 24 points against the Gators in Rupp a month earlier. In two games against Florida this year, Miller has scored 15 points, hitting just one of six three-pointers.
