2018-19 UK Basketball Season

Free throws seemed destined to be the saving grace for No. 6 Kentucky before it finally strung baskets together. Tyler Herro made his share of both, and that combination was important in putting away Florida. Herro scored 16 points and led a big second-half run that helped the Wildcats overcome the Gators 66-57 on Saturday.

The Kentucky Wildcats wrap up the regular season tomorrow afternoon against Florida in Rupp Arena.  It’s Senior Day so the fans will be saying goodbye to graduate transfer Reid Travis; the looming question will be whether Travis will see any action on the court as he continues to recover from a sprained knee.  Florida is coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss to LSU while the Wildcats bounced back from their beat-down at Tennessee with a hard fought road victory over Ole Miss.  LEX 18 sports anchor Keith Farmer delivers this weekend's Scouting Report.

The big rematch against the Tennessee Volunteers is Saturday in Knoxville and as everybody knows the Wildcats will be a man down as Reid Travis continues to nurse a sprained knee.  The Vols are coming off a two point nailbiter win over Ole Miss earlier this week and it took a huge comeback for UK to dispatch Arkansas on Tuesday night.  Joining WUKY's Alan Lytle with the scouting report is LEX 18 sports anchor Keith Farmer.

Kentucky coach John Calipari surpassed Joe B. Hall on the school's all-time wins list and is second behind Adolph Rupp after an 80-53 victory over Auburn on Saturday.
