The big prize at the end of the rainbow in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday is a spot in the finals of the SEC Tournament, and the Kentucky Wildcats and Georgia Bulldogs will face off in the day’s second semifinal with a golden ticket to Sunday in the balance.
Kentucky blew the doors off of LSU in the quarterfinals (to the tune of an 18-point victory), and the win reminded the entire college basketball world of just how scary the Wildcats can be when they have it going. “Big Blue” has a significant advantage in the talent department here (as they almost always do), but moreover, they are a balanced team with top-50 units on both sides of the ball, and there is very little in the way of a weakness for UK.
Georgia has been one of the hotter teams in the country in recent days, making a huge run to grab the #3 seed in the SEC Tournament with a 12-6 conference record, and narrowly outlasting Ole Miss in the quarterfinals. The Bulldogs are still short of the bubble in the opinion of most experts, but with a solid defense and an improving offense, they have the ability to give Kentucky a good run, even without anywhere near the same level of talent.
