Sunday, January 18, 2009. (AP) -- Kentucky didn't need another record performance from Jodie Meeks to take another SEC road win.

Meeks scored 22 points and Kentucky never trailed in coasting to a 68-45 win over Georgia on Sunday.

Meeks, from Norcross, Ga., didn't come close to matching his school-record 54 points in Kentucky's win at No. 24 Tennessee on Tuesday night. Meeks left the game with 5:14 remaining and the Wildcats leading 62-36.

Patrick Patterson added 15 points and four of Kentucky's 11 blocked shots. Perry Stevenson had 13 points.

Kentucky (14-4, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) has won three straight and 9 of 10 as it makes its bid to move into the Top 25 on Monday for the first time this season.

Georgia (9-9, 0-3 ) suffered its fifth straight loss. Terrance Woodbury led the Bulldogs with eight points while making only 4 of 14 shots from the field.
