More than 130 donors helped kick off Big Blue Slam at Rupp Arena Monday, but two of them had more on their mind than just saving a life.

The annual blood drive competition between the UK Cats and the Florida Gators finished with Florida in the lead, 365 to 339.

Big Blue Slam continues through Friday, January 31st. KBC donor centers will be open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and there will be a number of blood drives on the University of Kentucky campus and at various other locations throughout the region.

Big Blue Slam donors will receive a commemorative T-shirt and a chance to win a package for two to the SEC Tournament in Atlanta – two tickets for the Thursday through Sunday sessions in the Georgia Dome and a three-night stay at the Westin Peachtree Plaza.
