Jamal Murray breaks Calipari era records for Kentucky

  Jamal Murray was virtually impossible for the Gators to stop on Saturday.

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.
