ATLANTA (AP) - The Harrison brothers are clicking at just the right time to have Kentucky in position for another Southeastern Conference tournament title.

Aaron Harrison broke out of shooting slump with 22 points and Andrew Harrison set a career high in assists for the second straight game with nine in Kentucky’s methodical 70-58 win over Georgia on Saturday to advance to the SEC tournament championship game.

Kentucky will play No. 1 Florida in Sunday’s championship game, creating the attractive matchup of the tournament’s two top seeds. Florida beat Tennessee 56-49 in Saturday’s first semifinal.

Kentucky coach John Calipari said he’s not looking forward to a third game against Florida.

Florida’s undefeated regular-season run through the conference included a sweep of two games against Kentucky. Florida took an 84-65 home win over the Wildcats on March 8 to close the regular season.

“I’ve had enough of Florida,” Calipari said, adding “it’s almost an honor to play a team like that.”

The Wildcats improved their record of dominance in SEC semifinals to 38-2.

James Young had 14 points and Julius Randle had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Kentucky (24-9), which never trailed but led only 36-32 at halftime.

Kentucky’s big lead was 16 points at 68-52.

Andrew Harrison, who had 12 points, set his career high in assists again; he had 11 points and eight assists in Friday’s impressive 85-67 win over LSU.

“My teammates make me look good right now,” Harrison said. “I’m just finding them and they’re knocking down shots.”

Aaron Harrison had been in a shooting slump before finding his stroke in Atlanta. In his last four games before the tournament, he made only 11 of 43 shots. Against Georgia, he made seven of 10 shots, including four of seven 3-pointers.

Aaron Harrison gave partial credit to his brother.

“I just knocked down some shots,” said Aaron Harrison. “My brother got me some great looks and Julius got me some looks.”

Kenny Gaines had 13 points, all in the second half, and Charles Mann had 12 for Georgia (19-13), which now likely will wait for a NIT bid.
