Kentucky got blown-out by Duke in that marquee game on opening night and then people forgot about them for a little while.
But the ‘Cats have been nothing but impressive since then, losing just twice by a single basket, once on a neutral floor against Seton Hall and at Alabama.
Kentucky has defeated North Carolina, Louisville, UNC-Greensboro, plus A&M, Vandy and Georgia in the SEC. At 3–1, they’re in the hunt with the rest of the pack, chasing Tennessee in the conference standings.
Ashton Hagans is UK’s top assist guy at just 3.4 per game. Five other guys get at least one dime per but the Wildcats play a lot of iso ball, which is a luxury that comes with the most talent. They have just eleven more assists this season, as a team, than turnovers.
Where Kentucky has young talent, Auburn has experience and physical maturity. The Tigers are going to try and push Kentucky around and, at home, they may just succeed.
The Tigers have a much better assist-to-turnover ratio and have committed 299 personal fouls on the season. They aren’t afraid to clobber you in the paint and if Kentucky is playing iso-ball, they’re going to leave Auburn bruised.
Auburn’s strength is its defense (opponents shoot just 41 percent from the field) and a balanced scoring attack (seven guys score at least seven points per game).
Unlike Kentucky, not a single freshman will see the floor for Auburn in this game.
