Last night’s loss was even more difficult than some of the other losses, depending on how you look at it.
Kentucky finally showed some fight last night. After falling down 12 points with about 6 minutes to go, the Wildcats could’ve easily fallen apart and lost by double digits, but Kentucky rallied and were seconds away from victory until a disastrous end with a foul and turnover.
Now, Kentucky looks ahead to Auburn coming to town on Saturday,
Auburn holds a win over Kentucky earlier in the season, but the Wildcats played well defensively that game, keeping the Tigers offense in check. They’ll need to replicate that defensive success on Saturday while hopefully building off some of the offensive success the team had last night.
The Tigers come in after defeating Vanderbilt 73-67 last night, that off the heels of back-to-back home losses to Georgia and Ole Miss.
The Tigers struggled offensively in that game, shooting only 35.6 percent from the floor and turning the ball over 17 times.
If Kentucky can keep Auburn’s offense in check and build off their shooting performance from last night, the Wildcats could pull off the win.
When the two teams last met, Auburn won 66-59 in a game where Kentucky shot 4-17 from three while the Tigers shot 5-24 from deep.

I’m still not sure that was the right call.
Kentucky actually shot the ball pretty well.
Sadly, there has been way too much confusion about this situation.
Not a great season in Durham either.
I mean, can you blame the man?
Is it ever too early to start looking to next season?
He was mad mad.
