Immanuel Quickley scored 26 points as No. 10 Kentucky held off visiting Florida 65-59 on Saturday at Rupp Arena.
The first thing that come to Nick Richards' mind – other than the pain he was feeling – was disbelief. Late in a big road win at LSU that gave Kentucky a two-game cushion in the race for the Southeastern Conference title, Richards threw down an alley-oop. In a freak accident, the ball landed under the basket just before Richards did. There was nothing Richards could do to avoid a rolled right ankle. "I don't think that's ever happened to anybody, but what are you going to do about it?" Richards said. All Richards can do is try to recover as quickly as possible. He returned to the LSU game, but began a regimen of treatment immediately afterward. He did not practice Thursday, but was expected to give it a go Friday ahead of a 6 p.m. Saturday matchup between No. 10/10 Kentucky (21-5, 11-2 SEC) and Florida (17-9, 9-4 SEC).
