NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- UK is now a 31 time SEC Tournament Champion.
The Cats withstood the fight of the Arkansas Razorbacks to get the 82-65 win in front of a mostly blue crowd in Nashville. The game became a literal fight in the closing minutes when Arkansas' Moses Kingsley was whistled for Flagrant Foul II for taking a shot a De'Aaron Fox's face.
Fox was named the tournament MVP, scoring 18 points in the win.
Head coach John Calipari says he's excited about the win for his team but acknowledges it likely did very little for their seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Kentucky enters the NCAA Tournament with a 29-5 record.
