How Florida Wins

Florida will win the game if they keep playing great defense. Their opponents are averaging 57.9 points per game and that ranks 5th best in the nation. The Gators need to also keep holding their opponents to low field goal percentage. Florida’s opponents only shoot an average of 39.3% per game and that ranks 16th best in the nation. They will also need to rebound the ball better. They rank 62nd in the nation in rebounding as they average 37.1 per game.

 

How Kentucky Wins

Kentucky will win this game if they keep finding ways to score. They rank 28th in the country in scoring as they average 78.8 points per game. The Wildcats also need to keep getting rebounds. They get an average of 41.9 rebounds per game and that ranks 5th in the nation. The final thing they will need to do is take care of the ball. They commit 12 turnovers per game and that ranks 122nd in the country.

 

My Prediction

Florida wants to make this game a low scoring defensive grudge match. While Kentucky wants to go out a score a lot of points. Whichever team plays to their style of basketball will have the best chance of winning the game.

I think that Florida goes to Kentucky and plays their defensive style of basketball. I think that the Gators contain the Wildcats offensive firepower and because of that the Gators get the win.

Final Score

Florida: 74
Kentucky: 68
