ATHENS, Ga. — No. 14 Kentucky continued its domination of SEC rival Georgia.

It took some time for the Wildcats to take control during Tuesday night’s 78-69 win over the Bulldogs.

Georgia never regained the lead.

Kentucky got its 13th consecutive win over the Bulldogs, who haven’t beaten the SEC power since 2013.
