ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Darius Miller came off the bench to score 19
points and Kentucky cruised in its first game since returning to
No. 1 in the rankings, beating Georgia 57-44 on Tuesday night.
Miller, who had started eight of the previous nine games for the
Wildcats (20-1, 6-0 Southeastern Conference), returned to the
sixth-man role he had played earlier in the season. It didn't
really matter. The senior made 7 of 8 shots, including all four
from 3-point range.
Kentucky used spurts of 10-0 and 10-1 to build a 38-26 halftime
lead. The Bulldogs (10-10, 1-5) never threatened in the second
half, even though the Wildcats cooled off considerably. They went
more than 5 minutes without scoring and made just 7 of 23 shots
over the final 20 minutes.
