Chart: Last 10 Kentucky-Florida games

Kentucky takes a five-game winning streak over Florida into its Tuesday matchup with the Gators at 7 p.m. on ESPN. John Calipari is 7-1 against Billy Donovan since coming to UK. His one loss was a 70-68 setback in Gainesville in 2011. That was the game in which Brandon Knight missed a last-second shot for the Cats.

The last meeting between the two teams happened in last year’s SEC Tournament. Florida led the semifinal game 56-49 with 10:42 to play. Kentucky went on a 16-0 run and held on for a 74-71 win. The Cats were then beaten by Vanderbilt in the tournament final.

Florida reached the finals of the West Regional before blowing a late lead and losing to Rick Pitino and Louisville. Of course, Kentucky beat that Louisville team in the Final Four, then knocked off Kansas in the national championship game.
