The Florida–Kentucky men's basketball rivalry[citation needed] is a semi-annual rivalry between the Florida Gators and the Kentucky Wildcats basketball teams. The two schools are permanent SEC rivals, meaning that they are scheduled to play twice a year in the SEC regular season while they rotate which four of the other 12 SEC teams they will play twice that season. Florida and Kentucky first met in 1927, with Kentucky winning 44–36. The two teams have played 140 times in total, with Kentucky holding a commanding 100–40 lead in the series. But despite Kentucky's lopsided series lead, this rivalry has produced many memorable games, including several match ups in the SEC Tournament Championship Game (the most recent of which Florida defeated Kentucky 61–60, in 2014). In addition, the Gators also hold the distinction of being the only team to ever defeat Kentucky seven straight times.
