Kentucky Avenges Georgia Loss

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Doron Lamb scored 19 points including a
pair of crucial baskets to halt a late Georgia rally and No. 14
Kentucky held off the Bulldogs 66-60 on Saturday.
The Wildcats (16-4, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) avenged a loss
at Georgia three weeks ago by clamping down on the cold-shooting
Bulldogs (14-6, 3-4) down the stretch.
Darius Miller added 14 points and seven rebounds for Kentucky,
which never trailed while winning its 29th straight game at Rupp
Arena, the second-longest active home streak in the country.
It wasn't exactly pretty. The Wildcats slogged through the final
10 minutes after building a 13-point lead. The Bulldogs, however,
had trouble taking advantage and never got closer than six.
Dustin Ware led Georgia with 18 points, but the Bulldogs shot a
season-low 37 percent (21 of 57) and star Trey Thompkins struggled.
The junior power forward, who lit up Kentucky for 25 points in a
77-70 victory Jan. 8 had just nine points on 2 of 10 shooting in
the rematch.
