It wasn’t pretty. Sometimes they’re not. Kentucky came out firing early, only to see Georgia fight back and the Dogs wouldn’t go away until the end. Still, the Cats escaped with their perfect season intact, 76-68. DeMarcus Cousins took over down the stretch, as he buried his foul shots and made several huge plays on the defensive end.
Conference play is never easy and any win is a good one. This one certainly qualifies and no one can question this team’s resolve down the stretch in close games. A victory to enjoy on a cold Saturday night. More in a few.
