Georgia entered the season as a dark horse in the SEC, but Mark Fox's team needed a signature win like this to be taken seriously as a contender. SEC player of the year candidate Trey Thompkins scored 25 points as Georgia survived an 11-0 Kentucky spurt midway through the second half to pull the upset.
Between theEnes Kanterruling on Friday, a bowl loss to Pittsburgh Saturday morning and this upset loss at Georgia on Saturday afternoon, Big Blue Nation could probably use a collective hug this morning. Kentucky shot only 38 percent from the field at Georgia, struggled with the physical nature of the game and had three players foul out in the final minutes.
Kentucky (12-3, 0-1) - No more questions aboutEnes Kanter, and no more direct comparison to last year's team that started 19-0 (4-0). While I'm sure UK fans would obviously love to haveKanterand be undefeated right now, there are fewer distractions now, and Cal has to figure out if he can win with a six man rotation.
