Quick thoughts: UK vs. GA

Sorry...due to a few procedures earlier today at St. Joseph, I was not up to posting pre-game notes. Saw these on and

-- Kentucky improves to 28-2, 13-2 SEC on the season. Georgia falls to 13-15, 5-10.

-- UK is 112-24 against the Bulldogs and 39-15 against UGA in Athens.

-- With a win, Kentucky claims a share of its 44th SEC Championship and the top overall seed at next week's SEC Tournament in Nashville, Tenn. at Bridgestone Arena.

-- With an SEC Championship in his first season as head coach at UK, John Calipari joined Tubby Smith and Eddie Sutton as UK coaches to win an SEC Championship in their inaugural season.

-- Calipari has won five straight conference championships and six in his last seven years.
