For nearly two years, Kentucky has rarely been threatened at Rupp Arena. Despite history indicating that’s likely to continue Tuesday night, the Wildcats aren’t taking defensive-minded Georgia lightly.
No. 22 Kentucky looks to continue its dominance in all facets as it goes for the second-longest winning streak at Rupp.
Kentucky (17-6, 7-3 SEC) has won 33 straight home games by an average of 21.3 points and only six have been decided by 10 or fewer.
The Wildcats are still a long way off from the team-record 54-game win streak at Rupp set from 2009-12, but they tied the second-longest with Saturday’s 80-61 victory over Florida.
Kentucky has won nine of the last 10 home matchups with Georgia (13-8, 6-4), including five straight following a 69-58 victory Feb. 3, 2015.
