Vol lose to Georgia, 59-57 in SEC Tournament

Georgia defeats Tennessee 59-57 in 2nd round of SEC Tournament

A player conspicuously absent from the announcements of all-this and all-that teams earlier in the week was all-important for Kentucky on Saturday.

The eighth-seeded Georgia Bulldogs succumbed to the top-seed Kentucky Wildcats, 71-60, Friday in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament at Bridgestone Arena. The Wildcats will play the victor of SC and Alabama.

As Georgia awaits its postseason fate, Calipari reiterated his point that the Bulldogs belong in the NCAA Tournament field. "We'll play anywhere ... yeah, so ..." But he contributed 20 points.

Yante Maten returned for the Bulldogs and scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds.

The steps Willis has taken as a shot blocker open up a world of possibilities for United Kingdom, as it frees Adebayo from that duty which in turn, helps lock up the defensive glass for UK. The way he played, how he changed the complexion of the game and the things that he did.

Kentucky freshman guard Malik Monk racked up several awards leading up to the SEC tourney and was named AP Player and Newcomer of the Year in the SEC.

Frazier finished the game with 15 points on 4-of-17 shooting from the field. Senior guard J.J. Frazier led the way with 17 points and 10 rebounds.




Isaiah Briscoe, Kentucky - The Cats' leader had the look of a guy who is ready for postseason play and has his full focus on making a championship run rather than his draft prospects, which may have led to some of his mid-season struggles. Monk made only one shot in a two-point half, while Fox sat out the final 6:09 after picking up his second foul.

Early in the season, Georgia's recipe for success on the basketball court was a simple one.

Unlike two regular season meetings when the Bulldogs pushed the Wildcats in close losses, Kentucky never let this one be in doubt.

Coach Mark Fox showed his displeasure by taking off his sports coat before the first television timeout. When Isaiah Briscoe got a rebound and putback, the United Kingdom lead was 14-5. Then they hit four of their final six shots of the half, including three buckets from Bone.

With the lead at 27-14, Frazier came alive. Frazier would score six straight against United Kingdom to pull the Gamecocks within six at 28-22. Frazier had pumped in 36 in the February rematch in Athens. Frazier beat the move by finding freshman Tyree Crump for a right-corner three-pointer with 10.2 seconds left. "He led the team", United Kingdom head coach John Calipari said.

But Briscoe answered with a pull-up jumper from 15 feet with less than two seconds on the clock. Georgia dominated the glass, out-rebounding the Vols, 39-29, for the game with Tennessee's SEC All-Freshman team selection Grant Williams in foul trouble for much of the afternoon.

The Wildcats opened the second half much like they did the first, this time with six scoreless points to extend their lead to 13. But UK would go on a 7-1 run to build the lead to 47-30 with just under 12 minutes to play.
