Can streaking Georgia contain Kentucky?

Can streaking Georgia contain Kentucky?

For all those feeling bullish about the surging Bulldogs, Kentucky would like a word.

John Calipari’s equally scorching team is a massive favorite entering this afternoon’s SEC tournament semifinal action at Bridgestone Arena. According to online sports book BetDSI, the Wildcats (24-8) own odds of -10.5 to clinch their sixth appearance in the event’s championship game since 2010.

First, though, UK must fend off the squad that staged a furious comeback in the waning moments against South Carolina. J.J. Frazier and the Bulldogs (19-12) rallied from 11 points down to claim a 65-64 triumph on Friday night.

Public shifting cash pile toward UGA

Georgia’s superlative guard was nails when it mattered most. Fifteen of his 20 points came after intermission as he helped the Bulldogs capture their season-best fifth consecutive victory.

Look back to Frazier’s last showing vs. Kentucky, though, and the attitude shifts dramatically. He missed all eight field-goal attempts in that 82-48 embarrassment at Rupp Arena.

Mark Fox’s crew continues to get by on guile and baskets in ideal situations. Barring a drastically improved performance from the floor, however, Georgia won’t be in this tilt as the second half winds down. UK’s whirlwind presses on, setting the stage for a Sunday dandy with Texas A&M.
