Now 30-1, Kentucky was led once again by super frosh Anthony Davis with 22 points, 12 boards and 6 blocks. Florida got 21 points and 9 boards from sophomore Patric Young, but there guards were held neutral by the quick Kentucky defense.
At the first North Carolina/Duke game of 2012, Austin Rivers buried a dagger to upset the Tar Heels on their home court.
