Caldwell-Pope, Georgia beat reeling Kentucky 72-62


Athens, Ga. —

Georgia raced off the court at halftime with even more momentum, knocking down a couple of 3s in the closing seconds.

After Brantley swished one from beyond the arc, Kentucky ran the clock down and appeared to deliver the final salvo when Wiltjer got inside for a lay-in with 6 seconds left. But the Bulldogs raced down the court and Caldwell-Pope got off a long trey that rattled around the rim, dropping in as the horn sounded for a 31-26 edge.

Willie Cauley-Stein had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats. Wiltjer added 12 points, Harrow 11.

Djurisic scored 12 points for Georgia and Williams chipped in with 10.
