Per ESPN: ATLANTA -- Top-ranked Florida reveled in a confetti celebration, cut down the nets again, and let out a big sigh of relief.

Kentucky came oh-so-close to sending the Gators to the NCAA tournament with their first loss since early December.

By the narrowest of margins, Florida capped a perfect run through the Southeastern Conference when Kentucky failed to get off a shot on the final possession. That allowed the Gators to escape with a 61-60 victory in the league championship game Sunday.
