PJ Washington led Kentucky with 18 points as the Wildcats won the battle in the paint 38-12 despite being out-rebounded.

Jarred Vanderbilt sat six seats from Kentucky coach John Calipari, dressed in a gray warm-up suit and bright blue sneakers.

Calipari wanted Hamidou Diallo to be this team's leader.

Coach Calipari is 20-3 in the SEC Tournament. After a halftime report of an aggravated knee, Yante Maten continued to play, but finished with nine points, marking just his second game this season he hasn't reached double digits in scoring.

As a team, Georgia shot just 28.3 percent.

After dispatching Texas A&M with a buzzer-beating layup Thursday, Bama freshman guard Collin Sexton punished SEC champ Auburn with 31 points in an 81-63 quarterfinals victory Friday.

They were the leaders in a balanced effort against Georgia.

The Bulldogs (12) are the underdogs despite wins over Vanderbilt and Missouri over the past two days, respectively.

"Kentucky's defense is very good", Georgia head coach Mark Fox said. The Wildcats defeated the Crimson Tide 81-71 in their lone regular-season matchup February 17 in Rupp Arena.

Georgia now awaits its postseason status.
