ATHENS, Ga. (AP) De'Aaron Fox scored 16 points, including six free throws in the final 45 seconds, and No. 13 Kentucky overcame J.J. Frazier's 36 points to beat Georgia 82-77 on Saturday night.
Frazier's season-high effort helped keep Georgia close after the Bulldogs lost top scorer Yante Maten with a right knee injury less than two minutes into the game.
Malik Monk also had 16 for Kentucky (22-5, 12-2 Southeastern Conference). The Wildcats began the night tied with South Carolina for the SEC lead.
Kentucky was pushed to overtime in its 90-81 home win over Georgia on Jan. 31, and this game also was tight.
