The Kentucky Wildcats trailed early but finished strong in a 93-80 win versus a stubborn Georgia squad in the conference semifinals. The Bulldogs were up five at the half and led in to the second before UK caught fire and couldn’t be stopped. The Wildcats held a slight 50%-49% shooting edge but won it at the charity stripe with ten more free throws on a near perfect 26-30 effort. Kentucky received a game high 26 points and six pulls from Jamal Murray with Tyler Ulis adding 25 points and five assists. Derek Willis tossed in 14 points and snared seven boards while Isaiah Briscoe and Alex Poythress scored 12 and ten points with Briscoe posting seven rebounds.
The under is 16-5 in Kentucky last 21 Sunday games and the Wildcats are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Sunday games. The under is 13-5 in Texas A&M last 18 overall and the under is 12-5 in their last 17 vs. Southeastern. I don’t see no reason the Aggies why the Aggies can’t compete here…
