GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Patric Young scored 18 points in his final home game and No. 1 Florida routed 25th-ranked Kentucky 84-65 Saturday, becoming the first team in Southeastern Conference history to go 18-0 in league play.

Fellow seniors Casey Prather (15) and Scottie Wilbekin (13) also reached double figures for the Gators (29-2, 18-0), who have won 23 straight this season and 32 in a row at home.

Coach Billy Donovan called timeout with 36.9 seconds remaining to get his four seniors another standing ovation.

They certainly deserved this one.

Young, Prather, Wilbekin and fellow starter Will Yeguete have now won 113 games in four seasons, four shy of tying the school record held by Walter Hodge.

The latest one seemed a lock early but was in doubt for a while in the second half.

Julius Randle led the Wildcats (22-9, 12-6) with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
