Georgia sinks Kentucky 90-85
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.
