Auburn upset No. 14 Kentucky for the first time in 18 games, and the fans at Auburn Arena made sure to relish in the glory of knocking off the Wildcats.
A portion of the sellout crowd stormed the court to celebrate the victory following Auburn’s 75-70 win. It was Auburn’s first victory over a ranked opponent since defeating No. 23 Mississippi State in 2012.

The Tigers hung around with the Wildcats throughout the game and used a 6-for-10 3-point shooting performance to propel themselves to victory in the second half. Junior guard Kareem Canty poured in 26 points while senior forward Tyler Harris put together a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
Bruce Pearl scored his best win at Auburn on Saturday evening and it will surely be a game Auburn fans won’t quickly forget.
