Georgia looks to derail No. 1 Kentucky's quest for history

AP Sports Writer

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - With a perfect regular season in sight, No. 1 Kentucky looks downright unstoppable.

The mighty Wildcats aren't just beating teams - they're beating them up, winning their last five Southeastern games by an average of more than 24 points.

The next team standing in the way of history is Georgia, which hosts Kentucky (29-0, 16-0 SEC) Tuesday night in a game that also carries a lot of importance for the Bulldogs.

Georgia's most recent NCAA appearance came four long years ago. This season, the Bulldogs (19-9, 10-6) have a strong RPI rating and most projections have them in the 68-team field.

While coach Mark Fox says his team doesn't need to beat Kentucky to clinch a spot in the NCAAs, an upset of the Wildcats would surely lock it up.
