Karl-Anthony Towns scored 19 points to lead six Kentucky players in double figures, and the top-ranked Wildcats broke the century mark in a Southeastern Conference game for the first time in five years with a 110-75 blowout of Auburn on Saturday night that extended its best start ever.
The Wildcats (27-0, 14-0 SEC) surpassed 100 points each in preseason wins over lower-level Pikeville and Georgetown College but hadn't broken triple digits in a league game since beating Arkansas 101-70 on Jan. 23, 2010.
Aaron Harrison's two free throws with 3:18 left ensured the achievement in a game that was never in doubt as the Wildcats scored the first nine points and never let up. He finished with 18 points.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
