Kentucky is 34-0, and will enter the NCAA tournament undefeated. They are only the fourth team to do so since Indiana won the title in 1976 while not losing a game.
Arkansas never led in the game. The victory gave Kentucky its 28th SEC tournament title. Willie Cauley-Stein and Andrew Harrison led the team with 15 points each. Cauley-Stein also had 10 rebounds. For the first time all season, Kentucky's bench was outscored by their opponents' bench.
