Cats Finish Season Perfectly, 31-0; 18-0
Established Themselves In Very Rare Company

Kentucky became the 29th team in NCAA history to record a perfect regular season. The Wildcats are the first team from a major conference to finish the regular season undefeated since Indiana in 1975-76 and just the third team overall to accomplish the feat since 1990-91.

Kentucky became just the 13th school in NCAA history to start a season 31-0. Six of those schools went on to win the national championship, 10 reached the Final Four.

Kentucky extended its school-record start to 31-0. It is also the best start for any team in SEC history.

The Wildcats now own the two longest winning streaks in SEC history: 32 from 1953-55 and 31 in 2014-15.

31 is the longest win streak in John Calipari's coaching career.

This is the 15th time in school history that Kentucky has gone undefeated in the SEC regular season, the second time under Calipari (2012) and the fourth time since 1996. It also marks the third time in the last four years that an SEC team has traversed the league undefeated.

The Wildcats set a school-record with 19 home wins this season, eclipsing the record of 18 set in 1985-86, 2009-10 and 2011-12.

It marked the 12th time in Rupp Arena's 39-year history that Kentucky finished the season undefeated at home and the fourth time in six years under Calipari.

Quote of the Year:

Kentucky's 25-8 run to win by 8

"We played hard. We played very well.
But we didn't play perfect.
And they are so dang good that
you almost have to play perfect."
