Kentucky Rolls Past Georgia In Semi-Finals

03/15/2014 07:24 PM

John Calipari’s tweak still packed a punch on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Kentucky rolled past the Georgia Bulldogs, 70-58, to advance to the finals of the SEC Tournament.

The Harrison twins had the Cats firing on all cylinders right from the tip. Aaron Harrison finished with 22 points and Andrew Harrison set a career-high in assists with nine. They made for Kentucky only recording 4 points off the bench — all from senior guard, Jarrod Polson.

Kentucky led Georgia by four at halftime, 32-28, but midway through the second half the Cats opened up the game, pushing the lead to as many as 16 points. Kentucky’s 51% shooting from the field was too much for the Bulldogs to overcome. Kentucky also shot 9 of 16 from three-point range, 56.3%.

Julius Randle added 12 points and 11 rebounds. James Young had 14 points.

UK moves to 24-9 on the season and have picked the right time to come alive as they will have a chance to win another SEC Tournament Championship Sunday afternoon when they face off against #1 Florida at the Georgia Dome.
