LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Terrance Woodbury had 30 points as Georgia
defeated Kentucky 90-85 Wednesday night, delivering a potentially
fatal blow to the Wildcats' hopes of securing an at-large bid to
the NCAA tournament.
On the night Kentucky honored its lone senior, Jared Carter, in
pregame ceremonies, it was Georgia's lone four-year senior who
spoiled the party.
Woodbury scored the Bulldogs' first nine points, then followed
with clutch baskets down the stretch. His fourth 3-pointer of the
game midway through the second half helped halt a Kentucky rally
and hush the Rupp Arena crowd.
Woodbury also hit all 12 of his free throws.
Georgia (12-18, 3-12 Southeastern Conference) won for just the
fourth time in 32 meetings at Rupp Arena. Kentucky (19-11, 8-7)
likely must win the SEC tournament, as Georgia did a year ago, to
avoid missing the NCAAs for the first time since 1991.
