Big lead disappears as Gators fall to Wildcats once again
KENTUCKY 69, FLORIDA 66: Up 11 in the second half, the Gators' losing streak against Kentucky hits eight.
Published February 9, 2005
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kelenna Azubuike scored 18 as No.5 Kentucky rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to beat Florida 69-66 on Tuesday.
The Wildcats beat the Gators for the eighth consecutive time and 10th in the past 11 matchups to take a three-game lead in the SEC East with seven games left.
Florida, which routed then-No. 11 Alabama by 31 on Saturday, looked to be in control against Kentucky as well, leading by 11 during the first half and by nine with 3:03 into the second.
But Kentucky scored 13 of the next 15 to go ahead 47-45. The Wildcats took their first lead since since early in the game when Rajon Rondo threw a behind-the-back pass to Ravi Moss for a layin.
The Wildcats went ahead for good at 53-52 on Azubuike's 3-pointer with 9:52 left and held the lead thanks mostly to the play of Rondo, their freshman point guard.
The 6-foot-1 Rondo had 14 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He also helped shut down Anthony Roberson, the SEC's second-leading scorer going in, in the second half. Roberson scored eight mostly meaningless points after getting 15 in the first half.
Rondo, a 50 percent free throw shooter, went 8-of-10 from the line.
Kentucky led 64-54 after a three-point play by Azubuike with 3:37 left. Florida came within four with a minute left and had two chances to pull closer. But Matt Walsh and Roberson missed 3-pointers.
Chuck Hayes, who had 11 points and nine rebounds, made two free throws for Kentucky with 26 seconds left, and Moss went 1-of-2 from the line with 10 seconds left.
