No. 1 Florida Gators basketball on Saturday became the first team in Southeastern Conference history to finish the regular season a perfect 18-0 in league play as it thwarted the No. 25 Kentucky Wildcats 84-65 on Senior Day in Gainesville, FL.

The festivities began at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center before the contest with all four seniors – forward Casey Prather, point guard Scottie Wilbekin, F Will Yeguete and center Patric Young – honored prior to playing their last game in the O’Dome. They continued as Florida opened up a 22-point first-half lead over Kentucky and pulled away late in the second half to earn a 19-point victory.

OnlyGators.com takes a look at the historic day, which also saw UF go undefeated at home for the second consecutive season, through pictures published on Twitter via a variety of sources. Check them all out below.

    I don’t think a 6 minute video does this Senior class enough justice, they have been special.

    When will Patric’s article be posted? It’s Sunday afternoon. All the seniors’ individual stories have been nothing but great, as is everything on this blog. It has been well worth the $35 donation (it might have been more, really don’t remember)
