Kentucky is looking very strong after 3 straight wins in the conference.
Kentucky will hope to win the second game of the season serie after a 9 point victory last month.
The big question will be if Georgia can keep up with the pace of Kentucky’s athletes on the perimeter.
Kentucky will be a tough team to matchup with once tournament time rolls around. They have the ability to blow any time out, but the youth may have a game where they don’t show up, which has been the team’s main obstacle the last couple of tournaments.
The Wildcats are led by Malik Monk, who is one of the most prolific scorers in college basketball. He dominated the Volunteers in the last game, scoring 20 points and grabbing 8 rebounds.
In the first meeting against the Bulldogs he had his second highest scoring total of the season, with 37 points in the 9 point win. Expect Monk to put on a show and get 30 points and 6 rebounds in this one.
De’Aaron Fox is the other playmaker in the backcourt for the Wildcats. Averaging 15 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds per game he will be a key factor in Kentucky getting a win.
He did not play in the first game of the season series but is coming off of a good performance against Tennessee where he scored 13 points and racked up 6 assists.
Isaiah Briscoe has been a consistent scorer for Kentucky this season. He has scored 10 or more points in all but 3 games this season. Expect him to have another solid performance and be a big contributor in this contest.
Kentucky likes to push the ball whenever possible, and they have outstanding guards who can get the job done. This will become a track meet that could play into their favor.
Junior forward Yante Maten is underrated in draft circles, but he has been the key man for the Bulldogs this season.
Maten is averaging 19 points and 7 rebounds per contest and will be a tough matchup for the Wildcats inside. In the Bulldogs 7 point win against Mississippi State, he had 24 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks.
Maten should have a good game against the Wildcats and I expect him to get a double double with 4 blocks.
Senior J.J. Frazier has been on a scoring tear in the last few games, and should continue this streak against the Wildcats. He scored 17 points, but also grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 6 assists.
His matchup against Malik Monk will be a great one, and the two guards should go back and forth all night.
The biggest worry for me concerning the Bulldogs is their defense. They have given up 70 points or more in 5 straight games, and gave up 90 to the Wildcats.
If the defense can’t focus and slow down the talented guards of Kentucky, it will easily be a sixth straight game giving up 70 or more.
