Wildcats Thunder Sports Reporter
It's senior night at Rupp tomorrow night as WOO, Perry, and Thomas are being honored for their respective four year careers in the Blue and White. The University of Georgia Bulldogs will be coming to town.
The last meeting between UK and UGA, the Dawgs overcame a 16 point deficit and downed the Wildcats in Overtime in Athens The Cats will be looking for some sweet revenge and try to get back on the winning track as we have lost 4 out of our last 5 games.
According to the stat book these 2 teams seem to be quite evenly matched:
Overall Record: 19-9 17-10
Conference Record: 8-6 8-6
Scoring Offense: 72.8 76.5
Scoring Defense: 66.1 67.6S

Steals Average: 5.8 8.7
The Dawgs are led by Takais Brown who averages 14 points and 5 rebounds a game. The Cats are led by Randolph Morris who averages 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks a game.
The Cats are looking for some sweet revenge for the last meeting between these two SEC East teams. UK has lost 4 out of their last 5 games. While the Dawgs have won 4 out of their last 5 games.
UK is going to have to start to play the way that the University of Kentucky is known for. UK is going to have to be hitting their shots tomorrow because UGA is a pretty good shooting team. We are going to have to keep a hand in their face the whole game.
If we get a big lead, we can't let it go down the toilet like the last meeting in Athens! We are going to have to jump on them right at the tip. We can't afford to dig ourselves in a hole.
UGA is going to be an extremely tough game. We will have to show up ready to play and focused 120% or we will be in for a long night. We can't afford to lose 5 out of our last 6 games before we head to UF to face the Gators.
