Kentucky turning the corner
08:14 AM ET 01.21 | Playing in front of a hostile SEC crowd on the road, Kentucky's young Wildcats managed to hang a 75-54 win on Auburn. The very nature of young teams is inconsistency, so hold off on the parade, but just maybe the University of Kentucky basketball team turned a corner Saturday night at Auburn. ... Just four days earlier, after an escape at home against Tennessee, coach John Calipari said he wasn't sure his team would ever be up 20 points on an opponent. This group, he thought, just isn't going to "whomp" anybody the way most of his recent teams have. It certainly looked that way early against Auburn. After opening the game 2 of 14 from the field, it looked like another night of tough sledding.
