GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - January Miller scored 20 points, including 3 of 4 late free throws, to lead Florida in an 86-80 upset of No. 15 Kentucky on Sunday.

Florida (17-7, 7-4 SEC) led by as much as 10 in the first half, but Kentucky (17-6, 5-5) scored the last six before intermission and trailed 40-36 at halftime.

The Wildcats tied it at 40 just 1:30 into the second, but the Gators ran off 14 straight points before Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell called timeout. His club started to chip away, cutting the deficit to one on Azia Bishop's layup at 73-72 with 3:57 left.

But Florida countered with a Lily Svete 3-pointer and made four of six free throws down the stretch.

Kayla Lewis added 18 points and 17 rebounds for the Gators, while Svete finished with 17.

Jennifer O'Neill led Kentucky with 20 points. DeNesha Stallworth had 14 points and 13 rebounds.
