Well, here we are: two losses in a row and a mediocre (at best) Georgia Bulldogs team. The Dawgs are 13-8 on the season and have been a bit of a disappointment as they were pegged to be a tournament team for the SEC. They are coming off a four point loss to Florida and a two point win vs. Texas.
De’Aaron Fox and the Wildcat guards will again have their hands full with J.J. Frazier. He’s averaging 15.5 points per game. And junior forward Yante Maten is a load. He’s scoring 19.2 points per game and 7.7 rebounds.
If Kentucky comes out flat, uninspired, and unfocused again, this certainly can be a third loss in a row. The ‘Cats are 16.5 point favorites but they’ve been favorites in their last two games as well.
