Kentucky Advances To SEC Championship Game

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - DeMarcus Cousins had 19 points and 15

rebounds, and No. 2 Kentucky beat 15th-ranked Tennessee 74-45

Saturday and advanced back to the Wildcats' accustomed spot in the

Southeastern Conference tournament championship game.

Mississippi State on Sunday, looking to add a 26th tournament title

to the 44th regular season championship the Wildcats won in coach

John Calipari's first season.

range, and John Wall added 14 as Kentucky chases its first tourney

title since 2004.

a five-game winning streak.
