Kentucky scored a huge win over Florida on Saturday afternoon, downing the Gators by double digits in Lexington.

Freshman shooting guard Jamal Murray was a major reason why. He scored 35 points against Florida, tying a Kentucky freshman record held by Terrence Jones.

Kentucky has had some outstanding players in the John Calipari era, and Murray put himself in a category of his own with the 35-point outburst.

Murray is averaging 17.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game for the Cats.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
