In one of the biggest games for Auburn basketball in years, the Tigers look to remain in first in the SEC with a win over Kentucky. Kentucky vs. Auburn live stream.
The No. 2 Auburn Tigers will put their 14-game winning streak and unbeaten SEC record on the line Saturday when they host the No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats.
Auburn is fresh off an 83-60 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs at home on Wednesday. Future NBA lottery pick Jabari Smith scored just 12 points, but North Carolina transfer Walker Kessler scored 15 to pace the Tigers.
Kentucky has lost thrice this season, dropping games at Notre Dame and LSU and losing to Duke on opening night at Madison Square Garden. On the other hand, Auburn’s lone setback is to Connecticut on a neutral. The Tigers boast wins over LSU, Alabama, Florida and Loyola-Chicago.
However, the Wildcats enter Saturday’s matchup on a bit of a hot streak. They dropped 107 on Tennessee last weekend in a 28-point victory and just beat a quality Texas A&M team on the road. But, to stun the Tigers on Saturday, they’ll have to control the interior like they have all season and get leading scorer Oscar Tshiebwe more involved. He’s averaging just 8.5 points over Kentucky’s last two games, well below his season average of 16 points. The Wildcats will also need to contain both Smith and Kessler to have a shot.
