A basketball team that exhibits great balance can be very tough to defend. That’s what Kentucky exhibited on Saturday against Auburn.
The Cats had four players in double figures en route to beating the Tigers 86-54 at Rupp Arena. The win was Kentucky’s fourth in a row and moved the Cats to 20-9 on the season and 11-5 in the Southeastern Conference with two regular season games remaining.
Oscar Tshiebwe led the Cats with 22 points and 17 rebounds, his 44th career double-double. Antonio Reeves had 21 points, including making four of seven from behind the arc. Cason Wallace had 19 points and nine assists, while Jacob Toppin had another double-double with 13 points and a career-high 12 rebounds.
Early in Saturday’s game, Auburn was beating Kentucky at its own game. The Tigers were on the offensive glass early and often and were getting the additional possessions the Cats have been getting in the last three games.
