After what felt like one of the longest halves of college basketball ever, Kentucky leads Auburn 35-27. The Cats ended the half on a 9-0 run, which included huge threes by Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson.

After not scoring vs. Georgia on Tuesday, Keldon leads the Cats with 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3PT FG), followed by Reid Travis with 7 and Ashton Hagans with 6. Kentucky’s holding Auburn, one of the best offenses in the country, to 33.3 percent from the floor (9-27), 31.3 percent from behind the arc (5-16). That’s really, really good.

Nineteen fouls were called in the first half, at least four of which were reviewed by officials. Hopefully the refs left both sides play in the second half. Keep it up, Cats…
