Kentucky vs AUBURN TIGERS (03/06/99 at Atlanta, Ga.)

No. 14 Kentucky used a pressuring defense to limit No. 4 Auburn to 30 percent shooting from the field and its lowest scoring output of the season in a 69-57 Wildcat victory during the semifinals of the SEC Tournament before 26,247 in the Georgia Dome. Kentucky, which defeated the Tigers for the 14th straight time, jumped out to a 17-6 lead less than six minutes into the game behind three 3-pointers, two by Scott Padgett and one by Desmond Allison. The Tigers trailed by as much as 27-11 with 8:30 left in the half before going into intermission down 33-22. Trailing 48-35 with 10:17 left, Auburn went on a 7-0 run to get as close as 48-42. UK's next two buckets just beat the shot clock. Tayshaun Prince then banked in a 3-pointer to beat the shot clock for a UK 51-42 lead. Auburn's Doc Robinson then answered with a trey. However, Allison then made an off-balance 6-footer in the lane just before the shot clock expired to end the Tiger rally. Auburn was a dismal 27 percent (8-30) from 3-point range. Doc Robinson and Jay Heard each had 14 points to lead the Tigers while Chris Porter tallied 12 points and 9 rebounds. Wayne Turner and Padgett each scored 13 points to lead UK.
