In news we knew was coming, Bryce Brown will play tonight. Auburn’s leading scorer missed the Tigers’ win over Georgia Saturday with a shoulder injury, but per Jeff Goodman, he will try to make a go of it vs. Kentucky:
Auburn’s Bryce Brown will give it a go tonight against Kentucky, school spokesman told ESPN. Not sure how long he’ll go or how effective he’ll be. Sat last game with a shoulder strain.

Brown averages 16.6 points per game and leads the SEC in made three-pointers with 81. Earlier today, he was named to the top 30 list for the Naismith Award, along with Kevin Knox.
Yesterday, Hamidou Diallo said he’s ready to prove himself on defense. Slowing down Brown would be a great start.
