Kentucky wins 27th SEC Championship

With a 70-54 victory against Billy Donovan's Florida Gators, the Kentucky Wildcats have won their 27th SEC Championship.

Maysville's own Darius Miller was named as the tournament MVP.

The key stat of the game is how each team did from the free throw line. The stats for today are as follow:
KENTUCKY 24-29 (82.8%)
FLORIDA 3-8 (37.5%)

If you don't get fouled and go to the line in the process, you can't win. It's as simple as that. The alternative is being lights out from three point land, where Kentucky was 6-14 compared to Florida's 7-20. Throw in the free throws and it just isn't enough.

Despite the very close games on the road, Kentucky is heating up at exactly the right moment.

It's going to be a fun March.
