Kentucky and Auburn meet up for the second time this season as Auburn comes to Rupp this Saturday. We played Auburn at Auburn Arena the first of this month and end it with playing them. Auburn defeated us 75-66. We look to get retribution as we play them on our home court.
Kentucky is coming off a win over Texas A &M, Immanuel Quickley had a 30 point night that included 8 3 pointers and they move their focus to the once undefeated Auburn Tigers who defeated Kentucky 77-71 in the Elite Eight in last year’s NCAA Tournament. Kentucky defeated Auburn in both regular season games at Auburn, 82-80 and at Lexington, 80-53. Auburn is coming off a 67-58 win over Ole Miss.
Players to keep an eye on are Austin Wiley who returns to Auburn with 6.9 points and 4.0 rebounds for the Tigers, Daniel Purifoy with 0.6 assists, and J’Von McCormick with 50.0 3PG for the Tigers.
Kentucky and Auburn play in a sold out game at Rupp Arena this Saturday at 3:45 p.m. ET on CBS.
