Georgia Loses To Kentucky; SEC Tourney Run Ends
ATLANTA (AP) — Aaron Harrison scored 22 points and Kentucky took a methodical 70-58 win over Georgia on Saturday to advance to another Southeastern Conference tournament championship game.
Kentucky will play No. 1 Florida in Sunday’s championship game, creating the attractive matchup of the tournament’s two top seeds. Florida beat Tennessee 56-49 in Saturday’s first semifinal.
The Wildcats improved their record of dominance in SEC semifinals to 38-2.
James Young had 14 points and Julius Randle had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Kentucky (24-9), which never trailed but led only 36-32 at halftime.
Kentucky’s big lead was 16 points at 68-52.
Kenny Gaines had 13 points, all in the second half, and Charles Mann had 12 for Georgia (19-13), which now likely will wait for a NIT bid.
