Georgia men hang on to upset Missouri in SEC tournament

UGA Basketball UK

Derek Ogbeide snagged a game-high 11 rebounds to aid Georgia's 42-39 rebounding edge.

PJ Washington scored 18 points to lead Kentucky, which entered as the No. 4 seed - the first time the school hasn't been a top-two seed since Calipari was hired in 2009. Fox had been the head coach in Athens for the past 9 seasons.

He had just discovered what time Saturday's semifinal game will be played. "I've always enjoyed contact, I'm a physical guy, I like being aggressive on the court".

Fox said he was focused on getting his team ready rather than job security. Unfortunately, the rest of the team struggled and Georgia has been out of the running for a tournament berth for more than a month. The Bulldogs' 49 points were the lowest Kentucky has limited any opponent to this season. Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander both scored 15.

What was most impressive, though, was the grit, tenacity and defensive prowess that Kentucky showed in putting the Bulldogs down. One team is coming off a loss while the other is playing for the third consecutive day. The Crimson Tide upset No. 1 seed Auburn 81-63 in the quarterfinals Friday afternoon.

United Kingdom is 44-12 in "bounce back" games under Calipari following a loss.

Did the Wildcats miss the guy who averaged 10 rebounds over the team's last six games?

Vanderbilt's role got larger as the season went on. Player of the year Yante Maten, who was dealing with a thigh bruise, was limited to nine points by Kentucky's trapping defense.
