Cats win nail-biter at Auburn

Cats win nail-biter at Auburn

Kentucky defeated Georgia earlier this week in Athens. No. 1 matchup on Saturday, as the top team in the AP Top 25 (Duke) faces the Coaches Poll's top team (Virginia) in an ACC battle that could go a long ways deciding how the conference race gets settled in the regular season. The atmosphere, the intensity of a game - it will feel much like a rivalry. "I just had to stay aggressive in the second half".

As Kentucky coach John Calipari was addressing the media, Barkley dropped in to say hi.

Barkley said that Kentucky's statue for Calipari was too skinny and told the coach he was trolling him from the stands. They do it off the bounce, off the catch, and in transition. But, they also got (Austin) Wiley, who's a heck of a post player, and they are very active rebounding the ball. "If you really guard them and really guard the three, they are still going to shoot 35 of them. They are really good".

The Cats denied Auburn an opportunity to win three consecutive home games against United Kingdom for the first time since 1974-76.

It made for a dramatic finish for two teams who meet again February 23 in Lexington.

"Guys were taking it the right way and the sky is the limit because we have each other's back and holding each other accountable". Johnson's outburst came on the heels of his scoreless effort in a win over Georgia on Tuesday. So, yeah, you've got to see people. I said, 'No listen, I'm telling you Kentucky's going to offer you and you're going to end up going to Kentucky'. "The game was physical (and) you've got to play". How about we win that game like we did and he didn't score a basket?

Hagans is averaging a modest 7.6 points per game - even after doubling it with the recent hot streak - and is second in the SEC with 2.3 steals per game. Calipari said the Tigers will provide a "neat" challenge for his squad. "What I'm proud of is we're playing a veteran team that's been through wars, that has been through games like this, that made shots". "It's helping our team as we prepare for what's ahead of us, from a zone, to hold the ball, to shoot it quick, to bring the bigs out, to shoot threes to - I mean, every game has been different".
