NEW YORK (Sporting Alert) — No. 1 Florida (31-2) go in search of extending its school-record winning streak when they take on Kentucky in the SEC tournament final at Georgia Dome in Atlanta, on Sunday.
The Gators recovered to pick up a hard fought 56-49 victory over a very determined Tennessee team in the tournament semi-finals on Saturday and could very well need on they same defensive energy to avoid being upset by Kentucky, who knocked off Georgia 70-58 in their semis.
Also on the schedule on Sunday is the ACC tournament title game between No. 6 Virginia and No. 7 Duke, with both teams looking to win and strengthen their chances of securing a top-seed place.
Duke survived a very tough challenge from North Carolina State in the 75-67 win in the tournament semifinal on Saturday, while Virginia also survived the battle against Pittsburgh, in the 51-48 semis win.
Elsewhere No. 8 Michigan take on arch rivals No. 22 Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament final, with No. 23 Virginia Commonwealth taking on Saint Joseph’s in the clash for the Atlantic 10 championship.
