In Your Face Gators!!
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Trailing 12th-ranked Florida 2-1, the No. 22 Kentucky Wildcats stormed back to take the final two sets and upset the 17-time SEC Champions in front of the fifth-largest crowd ever at Memorial Coliseum, Sunday. (All kinds of KY fans showed up hoping to see a win of some kind this weekend)(I made that part up) The five-set victory positions UK into first place by a half of a game in the SEC standings with two matches remaining in the regular season. Kentucky (25-4, 16-2) earned set victories of 25-23, 14-25, 20-25, 25-20, 15-6, to snap a 38-match losing streak to Florida (21-3, 15-2).“If that is not exciting volleyball then I don't know what is,” Kentucky coach Craig Skinner said. “We had a few moments together as a team in the locker room, and it was awesome for us.”
