What to Know
The #2 Auburn Tigers and the #12 Kentucky Wildcats are even-steven against one another since January of 2016 (5-5), but not for long. The Tigers and UK will face off in an SEC battle at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Auburn Arena. The teams split their matchups last year, with Auburn winning the first 66-59 at home and UK taking the second 82-80.
Auburn was the big favorite in their most recent game, and for good reason. They were the clear victors by an 83-60 margin over the Georgia Bulldogs. Auburn’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of forward Walker Kessler, who had 15 points along with six blocks and six boards, and guard Wendell Green Jr., who dropped a double-double on 12 points and 11 dimes.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats didn’t have too much breathing room in their matchup with the Texas A&M Aggies on Wednesday, but they still walked away with a 64-58 victory. UK’s forward Oscar Tshiebwe did his thing and had eight points in addition to 14 rebounds and three blocks.
The wins brought the Tigers up to 17-1 and UK to 15-3. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Auburn have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.60%, which places them 17th in college basketball. But the Wildcats enter the contest with a 49.80% field goal percentage, good for ninth best in college basketball. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
