GAINESVILLE, Fla. —
Cauley-Stein and Julius Mays led Kentucky with 10 points apiece.
The Wildcats shot 42 percent from the field and had 17 turnovers.
Calipari warned reporters Monday that beating Florida would be a difficult task, especially since the Gators have played so well at home (12-0 now) and have a much more experienced roster.
The most significant disparities came in the paint and off turnovers. The Gators scored 36 points in the paint and 20 points off turnovers; the Wildcats had 26 points down low and just five off Florida's 11 turnovers.
