Auburn vs Kentucky Preview
The Wildcats (22-4 overall, 11-2 in SEC play) have won two straight since falling to No. 19 LSU 73-71 at home on February 12.
They bounced back by demolishing No. 1 Tennessee 86-69 at Rupp Arena on January 16, then topped Missouri 66-58 on the road on Tuesday.
“It was funny because (Missouri head coach) Cuonzo (Martin) and I before the game, he said, ‘I know your team plays hard,’” Kentucky head coach John Calipari said, according to The Courier-Journal. “I said, ‘I’ve already told my guys how hard your guys play.’ He said, ‘Yeah, we’re not going to give you anything, you know that?’ We both laughed because I knew it was going to be a war.”
Mizzou carried a massive advantage on the offensive glass, grabbing 16 to the Wildcats’ six. But Kentucky shot 20-of-42 (47.6 percent) from the field, 7-of-19 (38.6 percent) from deep, and 19-of-22 (86.4 percent) from the free-throw line. The Tigers went 22-of-59 (37.3 percent) from the field and 9-of-27 (33.3 percent) from long range, and shot just seven free throws, connecting on five of them (71.4 percent).
Kentucky sophomore forward PJ Washington scored 18 points and grabbed eight boards, both game highs. Fifteen of his 18 came in the first half. The Wildcats went into the break with a 41-23 lead.
“PJ is a very challenging guy,” Martin said, per The Courier-Journal. “You can watch him on film, and we knew he made great strides, but that first half was really impressive the way he shot the ball.”
Against Auburn (18-8, 7-6), the Wildcats will be without senior big man Reid Travis, who sprained his knee in the second half against Auburn. He’s expected to miss two weeks.
Auburn’s also on a two-game winning streak. They bested Vanderbilt 64-53 on the road on February 16 then took down Arkansas 79-56 at home on Wednesday.
“That’s a really great win for our program,” Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said after the win over the Razorbacks, according to The Auburn Plainsman. “We have such respect for Arkansas and the basketball programs history in the SEC. We’ve kind of evened it up the last three years, which is hard to do against them. I’m very pleased. We got off to a very good start and made shots. It was a good dominating effort against a good team in the SEC, so it should be a good thing to build on.”
The Tigers shot a blistering 17-of-33 (51.5 percent) from deep. Every player in their starting lineup hit at least two 3-pointers.
“We just play our gameplan,” junior starting forward Anfernee McLemore said, per The Auburn Plainsman. “We shoot a lot, and hopefully we make a lot. I feel like anybody on the court can make a 3, one through five, honestly. I think that really gives everybody a lot of freedom on the court. If you’re open, you can take a shot.”
