Won vs. South Carolina 77-55 vs. Auburn, February 9, 2013, 4:00 PM
The defending champs (in name only) finally beat a likely tournament team when they won at Ole Miss. Their work isn’t done, but you have to pick up quality wins in the SEC when the rare opportunity presents itself.
The Wildcats need to continue their winning ways today vs. Auburn, but they need to dominate.
Next week is a huge week for Kentucky as they play at Florida and Tennessee.
