The Kentucky Wildcats were back in Rupp Arena on Saturday looking to get a win over the Auburn Tigers and inch closer to locking up a double-bye for the SEC Tournament.

Kentucky found their three-point shooting in the first half as Cason Wallace drilled his first attempt after missing his previous 16 giving the Cats a 10-9 lead early. Kentucky would go on to shoot 5/6 in the half.

Going along with the outside shooting was the dominating presence of Oscar Tshiebwe who recorded a first-half double-double with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and a block.

At the under-8 media timeout, the Cats were holding onto a 24-18 lead after a Jacob Toppin jumper.

Kentucky then closed out the half in dominating fashion as they used stout defense and three-point shooting to take a 40-29 lead into the break.

The Cats picked up right where they left off at the start of the second half as their lead grew to 16.

At the under-12 media timeout, the Cats held a 53-37 lead. Immediately out of the timeout, Antonio Reeves drilled back-to-back threes to make this a 59-37 ballgame.

Kentucky never took their foot off the gas from that moment forward as the lead was 67-42 at the under-8 timeout.

By the under-4 timeout, the Cats were just putting on a show as their lead hit 36 leading it 82-46.

Down the stretch, the Cats closed out a fun afternoon in Rupp Arena as they get the 86-54 win.
