They say it’s hard to beat any team three times in one season. Kentucky puts that to the test on Friday when the Wildcats play Georgia in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament. Tipoff is 1 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.

Kentucky needed 37 points from Malik Monk to beat the Bulldogs 90-81 in overtime at Rupp Arena on Jan. 31. Then on Feb. 18 in Athens, J.J. Frazier scored 36 points for the home team but it wasn’t enough as Georgia lost again to UK, this time 82-77.
