Recapping Kentucky's 78-63 victory over Arkansas on Sunday in the championship game of the Southeastern Conference Tournament at Nashville:
More perfection and another banner as UK captured its 28th Southeastern Conference Tournament title. Again, it was Kentucky domination over the SEC. Two Andrew Harrison three-pointers launched UK to an 8-0 lead but Arkansas punched back and tied it 10-10. It was tied 19-19 before Aaron Harrison and the Cats exploded. He had a couple of three-pointers and six early assists to spark a 20-5 Wildcats run. By halftime, UK led 41-25 and had limited Arkansas to 29 percent field goal shooting accuracy. With Karl-Anthony Towns in foul trouble, Arkansas battled back within nine points. Back came the Cats, and when Tyler Ulis threaded a pass to Towns for a dunk, UK was up 63-47 and back in control. 34-0!
Never miss a local story.
■ It's time for the Big Show.
■ Willie Cauley-Stein (15 points, 10 rebounds) said last week he needs to get his focus back. Mission accomplished.
■ Aaron Harrison to Willie Cauley-Stein. What a lob pass, what a high-flying dunk.
■ Marcus Lee and Dakari Johnson both gave the Cats a lift. It just makes this team even more dangerous.
■ For a player who makes flashy plays, Tyler Ulis (six assists, one turnover) is so fundamental.
■ Aaron? Andrew? Both were outstanding (combining for 26 points, seven assists and one turnover while going 6-for-8 on three-point shots).
■ Are national broadcasters ever going to realize that Tyler Ulis starts the second half of every game — not as a reward for good play in the first half?
■ Karl-Anthony Towns needs to avoid unnecessary fouls.
