UK basketball is getting set to take on the Auburn Tigers for the second time this season.

The first matchup between the two came on Feb. 21, and it got out of hand pretty quickly

The Cats surpassed the 20-point mark by the time the Tigers had four.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison put UK on their backs in that game, scoring 19, 18 and 12, respectively.

Six Cats scored in double-figures (two reached nine points) en route to a 110-75 victory.

Auburn’s Jordan Granger, who had four points in 29 minutes on 2-of-2 shooting in the matchup, will not be participating in the game today.

He was suspended one game for throwing a punch at LSU’s Jordan Mickey in Auburn’s overtime thriller Saturday.
