AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - John Wall hit two free throws with 8.9
seconds left to help No. 2 Kentucky remain unbeaten with a 72-67
victory over Auburn on Saturday.
The Wildcats (18-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) had a 13-point
halftime lead wiped out and the freshman star had an
uncharacteristically shaky game with seven turnovers. But his
clutch foul shots secured coach John Calipari's 52nd consecutive
victory in a regular-season conference game at Memphis and
Kentucky, breaking Adolph Rupp's NCAA record.
DeWayne Reed cut Kentucky's lead to 70-67 with two free throws
with 1:08 left, then Eric Bledsoe missed an open 3-pointer and the
ball went out of bounds to the Tigers (9-9, 0-3) with 37 seconds to
Reed missed a 3 and the Wildcats' DeAndre Liggins grabbed the
rebound and was fouled. Kentucky inbounded the ball to Wall who was
quickly fouled with 8.9 seconds left.
