Florida is the top-ranked team in the country and will likely get a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament even if it loses in the title game. The Gators are playing on Championship Sunday after defeating the fourth-seeded Tennessee Volunteers thanks to a dominant second half. The Vols shot 5-of-20 in that second half and scored just 14 points, after going into the break with a 35-28 lead. Tennessee's Jordan McRae tied the game at 49 with a three-pointer with 2:49 left, but the Gators scored the last seven points of the game, with five of them coming on free throws. Patric Young led all scorers with 16 points and also grabbed eight rebounds.
Kentucky got 22 points from Aaron Harrison on 7-of-10 shooting in dispatching the No. 3 seed Georgia Bulldogs 70-58 on Saturday. Julius Randle chipped in with a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, while Andrew Harrison dished out nine assists. The Wildcats shot 51 percent, including 56 percent from behind the arc, in the victory.
The Gators won both meetings with the Wildcats this season, by an average of 14.5 points per game.
