The Cardiac Cats came to play.

It wasn’t easy but, the No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats pulled out a gutsy win over No. 14 Auburn on the road winning by a final score of 82-80.

Kentucky led the game by double digits with under ten minutes remaining but, Auburn clawed back to take the lead with less than 30 seconds remaining.

However, clutch free throws by Tyler Herro put a bow on a huge road win for the Wildcats who improve to 14-3 on the season with a conference record of 4-1.

Herro was the player of the game for Kentucky as he dropped 20 points with four assists and three rebounds.

Keldon Johnson also had a big day dropping 20 points a game after he was held scoreless against Georgia.

For Auburn, it was all about their superstar Bryce Brown. Kentucky held Brown to only three points in the first half but, the superstar woke up dropping 25 points in the second half to finish with a game-high 28.

The Cats now have their biggest true road win of the season as the momentum continues to shift in the right direction heading towards their meeting with No. 7 Kansas next Saturday.

Here are the best reactions of Kentucky’s thrilling win over Auburn from social media.
