A look at some interesting numbers in SEC basketball.

1 — Ranking for Kentucky in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today top 25 polls. Kentucky has won 12 straight games and is 20-1 overall, with its lone loss coming on a last-second shot at Indiana.

61.0 — Points per game for Georgia, which ranks last in the SEC. The Bulldogs have struggled to find offense after losing underclassmen Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie early to the NBA Draft.

8.8 — Steals per game for Arkansas, which leads the SEC. The Razorbacks have adapted well to first-year coach Mike Anderson's up-tempo, pressing style.
