Florida fans edge Kentucky in Big Blue Slam

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Gators take another win this season. This time, winning the 10th annual Big Blue Slam.

Kentucky Blood Center had a big day Friday, but it wasn’t quite enough. Florida held on to win, 1,534 to 1,490.

“Even though we didn’t come out on top this year, it was a big win for Kentucky patients," said Martha Osborne, Vice President of Marketing for Kentucky Blood Center (KBC). "This week went a long way to rebuilding the blood supply that was hit hard by winter weather earlier this month. Thanks to all who rolled up their sleeves to save lives.”

KBC and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers in Florida enjoy this friendly competition every January to see whose donors can give the most blood.

Kentucky and Florida are now tied in this blood battle, 5 to 5.

On the basketball court, Florida rallied to beat then-No. 18 Kentucky in Rupp Arena 66-64.
