ATHENS, Ga. — Im­manuel Quick­ley’s 3-pointer gave Ken­tucky its first lead of the sec­ond half and the Wild­cats over­came An­thony Ed­wards’ 23 points to beat Ge­or­gia and con­tinue their dom­i­na­tion of the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence ri­valry.

Jay Heath scored 17 for the Ea­gles (9-6, 3-1), who had not beaten Virginia since 2013. It was BC’s first win over a ranked team since a vic­tory over No. 11 Florida State last Jan­uary.

The teams would trade a few of leads, be­fore Rut­gers (11-3, 3-1 Big Ten) took the lead for good on Mon­tez Mathis’ 3-pointer. He had a layup on the en­su­ing pos­ses­sion to make it 54-51 with 6:45 to go.
