    ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Eighth-ranked Kentucky can wrap up its 25th Southeastern Conference tournament championship on Sunday when it meets East Division rival Florida.

    Kentucky (25-4) enters on a season-high eight-game winning streak as it gets ready for its 10th championship game in the last 12 years. The Wildcats have won nine titles in that span.

    Gerald Fitch scored 24 points and Erik Daniels added 21 as Kentucky advanced with a 78-63 win over South Carolina. The Wildcats committed a season-low eight turnovers.

    The defending champion Wildcats won last year's title game with a 64-57 triumph over Mississippi State.

    Florida (20-9) posted a 94-69 rout of Vanderbilt to move into the title game for the first time since 1994. The Gators have never won an SEC crown.

    Anthony Roberson poured in a career-high 35 points and Matt Walsh added 20 as Florida used a 51-point second half to pull away. The Gators drained 13-of-22 attempts from the arc.

    Kentucky has won six straight against Florida, winning both matchups this season. The teams met last Sunday and the Wildcats got 21 points from Fitch in an 82-62 rout in Lexington.
