Auburn has fallen far since an early top-10 ranking, but still have a shot at the NCAA tournament. Kentucky, meanwhile, is continuing to come into their own and are steadily rising up the rankings in search of a #1 seed.

Auburn travels to the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky this weekend having restored some pride over the past week. Back-to-back losses against LSU and Ole Miss made for a rocky start to the month, but they’ve since recovered to beat Vanderbilt (away) and Arkansas (home) in succession.
The Kentucky Wildcats last lost at home to Auburn in February 2018, when the Tigers walked out confident 76-66 victors against their Southeastern opponents. Following an away win in January 2016, this marked the first time in 28 years that Auburn managed the feat in Kentucky.
Senior guard Bryce Brown has been the standout name for Pearl’s men this season and is averaging 16.3 points per game
Auburn hasn’t beaten a ranked opponent since they beat Washington in the opening week of the season back in November. Since then, they’ve lost to Duke, Kentucky, Mississippi State, and LSU.
John Calipari is in his 10th season as Kentucky coach, but after winning his first eight games against Auburn in the role, his side has gone 2-2 against Auburn.
Kentucky edged the Tigers 82-80 last month but shouldn’t overlook a conference foe that’s shown improved form in recent years. You can watch every major NCAA basketball game live on fuboTV, including the entire NCAA
