The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team defeated Florida University on Saturday 67-50 to finish their regular season undefeated and move to 31-0. This marks the second time in program history that the team has gone undefeated in the regular season—after the Wildcats won every game in their 1953 to ’54 campaign—and the first time that a team from a major conference finished the regular season undefeated since the 1975 to ’76 Indiana Hoosiers. The win on Saturday capped a dominant campaign for the Wildcats that included intense scrutiny from the first game of the season, when they defeated Grand Canyon University by 40 points. From speculation about the NBA potential of the team’s star forwards Karl-Anthony Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein to comparisons to all-time great college basketball programs, the Wildcats overcame the pressure of consistent astronomical expectations to finish the season undefeated. The Wildcats steamrolled through the rest of the first half of their schedule by beating fifth-ranked University of Kansas by 32, Montana State University by 58 and sixth-ranked University of Texas at Austin by 12.
