Auburn, AL (Sports Network) - Kyle Wiltjer scored a game-high 17 points to push the Kentucky Wildcats to a 75-53 rout of the Auburn Tigers in Southeastern Conference action at Auburn Arena.

Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin, and Ryan Harrow chipped in 12 points each for Kentucky (12-5, 3-1 SEC) as it picked up its second victory in a row. Harrow also dealt out eight assists while Nerlens Noels made a major contribution with 10 points, nine rebounds, and seven blocks.
