Kentucky used a late first half run to put some distance between themselves and the Georgia Bulldogs Tuesday night as they defeated their foe 57-44.

In the first half, the Wildcats were paced by senior Darius Miller and his 13 first half points. Miller knocked in three three-pointers and a couple of floaters. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist also played a solid first half, early, while the Wildcats kept Georgia at arm's-length.

Georgia was carried early on by freshman forward Nermanja Djurisic who made two three pointers in the first half to help Georgia cut into the Wildcat lead midway through the first half.

But despite the run, the Bulldogs weren't able to sustain their offense enough to hang with Kentucky. The Wildcats were once again able to block more than ten shots in the game and alter several more.

While Anthony Davis had a slow night on the scoreboard, he continually pulled down rebounds and was his usual steady self on the defensive side of the ball. Davis finished the game with 12 rebounds and five blocked shots.

Kentucky was able to keep Georgia under 40 percent from the field and the Wildcats out-rebounded the Bulldogs 40-18.

The Wildcats were led by Miller's 19 points and Kidd-Gilchrist's 14 points and 11 rebounds. Dustin Ware joined Djurisic in double figures for Georgia with 12 points.
