Dawgs take on Cats: By the Numbers

ATHENS – Dean Legge takes a look at the critical numbers in Georgia's matchup with Kentucky.

15… That's how many games in a row the Bulldogs had lost on the road in the SEC before last Saturday's 64-61 overtime win in Columbia over South Carolina.

85… That's how many games more wins Kentucky has than Georgia in the series (104-19); the most lopsided of any opponent for the Dawgs.

11… That's how many years in a row Georgia and Kentucky have gone without splitting their regular season games. Kentucky swept Georgia every season from 1995 until Georgia swept the Cats in 2002. The teams have alternated sweeping one another since.

1999… That was the last time Kentucky lost three regular season games in a row before losing at Kansas and back-to-back in Lexington to Vanderbilt and Alabama. In 1999, Kentucky lost three in a row to the Wildcats lost to Arizona, Dayton and Indiana.

2002… That's the last time before this season that Kentucky started off 0-2 in the SEC.

50%… Kentucky is a whopping 97-2 when shooting more than 50% from the field since Tubby Smith took over. But this season Kentucky has shot over 50% only four times this season – against Georgia State, #13 West Virginia, Lipscomb and North Carolina – but lost to the Tar Heels in December.
