UK seniors ready for final game at Rupp

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Darius Miller says he'll avoid crying at Kentucky's senior night while fellow honoree Eloy Vargas notes the Wildcats expect to keep playing five more weeks.

With Kentucky's annual exodus of NBA talent it also may be the last time the Rupp Arena crowd sees talented freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague in person. Sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones could also make themselves eligible for June's draft.

No. 1 Kentucky (28-1, 14-0 Southeastern Conference) faces Georgia (13-15, 4-10) on Thursday night and they're squarely focused on their goal of winning the school's eighth national championship.

The Wildcats need two more wins to cap a perfect regular season in league play, which would be just the third since 1956.
