Kentucky Wildcats Stay Undefeated, Win 27 in a Row

Kentucky routs Auburn 110-75 to go 27-0 which is the best start in the 112 years of Kentucky basketball history. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds and four blocks in the No. 1 Wildcats' win over the Tigers.



Kentucky started off with an offbeat performance in the early second-half but managed to close with a flourish and another victory which made the Wildcats matched the program's longest winning streak.



Kentucky went offensive in a big way, scoring a season-high 110 points. Six Wildcats scored in double figures to secure the win. Aaron Harrison's two free throws with 3:18 left broke the century mark in a game that was never in doubt as the Wildcats scored the first nine points and poured it on. He finished with 18. Dakari Johnson added 13 points, Andrew Harrison 12, Devin Booker 11 and Tyler Ulis 10, as Kentucky shot a season-best 65 percent from the field. The Wildcats dominated the paint 62-24, outrebounded the Tigers 44-22 and tied a season high with 25 assists.



"We cherish these moments," said Towns. "Not every game is going to be like this. We executed, played great defense and also made a lot of shots."



Antoine Mason scored a game-high 29 points including five 3-pointers for Auburn, which lost for the eighth time in 11 games. "Any run they get is an advantage," Mason said. "We didn't start the game off like we wanted to and they hit us in our mouths first."



Kentucky will try to extend their winning streak and go 28-0 when they visit Mississippi State on Wednesday.
