Aaron Harrison scored 15 points and No. 14 Kentucky pulled away from Georgia for a 79-54 victory Saturday.

Julius Randle added 14 points while James Young had 13 including a couple of second-half 3-pointers for Kentucky (15-4, 5-1 Southeastern Conference), which won its third straight.

Georgia (10-8, 4-2) had gotten within 37-31 with 16:18 remaining before the Wildcats steadily built a double-digit lead that rarely got below 20 points.

Georgia outrebounded Kentucky 35-32 but was outscored 36-24 in the paint in the only regular season meeting between the schools.

Brandon Morris had 15 points for Georgia, which played without starting guard Kenny Gaines and backup Juwan Parker because of thigh and hamstring injuries, respectively. That resulted in a four-forward starting lineup that eventually helped the Bulldogs control the boards, but they couldn't stop Kentucky inside as the Wildcats shot 50 percent (29 of 58).
