Recap: Auburn vs. Kentucky

Auburn, AL (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrew Harrison scored 16 points and No. 14 Kentucky overcame a poor shooting performance to beat Auburn for the 16th straight time, 64-56, on Wednesday.

Julius Randle posted 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats (19-5, 9-2 SEC), who narrowly avoided a letdown in advance of Saturday's showdown at home against third-ranked Florida. Aaron Harrison added 10 points for a Kentucky team that was held to 30.9 percent shooting.

"We shot 30 percent and won the game. That is old school," said Kentucky head coach John Calipari. "We just didn't have a whole group of guys playing. James (Young) gave us nothing. We broke down. We didn't rebound. We were soft."

Chris Denson was the lone Auburn player to score in double figures, finishing with a game-best 26 points. The Tigers (11-11, 3-8) haven't defeated Kentucky since a 66-63 triumph on Jan. 11, 2000.

Auburn appeared primed to end the drought, going on a 16-4 run after Andrew Harrison nailed a 3-pointer to open the second half.

A Denson jumper gave the Tigers their first lead at 36-35 and an Allen Payne dunk capped the surge and made it 38-35 with 11:29 remaining.

Down 42-41, Kentucky went on a 9-0 run to take back control. An Aaron Harrison jumper put the Wildcats up eight with 4:02 to play.

Andrew Harrison wrapped up an 8-for-11 effort at the free-throw line by making four attempts in the final minute.

"I thought we played as hard as them, but at the end of the day they made more winning plays," said Auburn head coach Tony Barbee.

Kentucky led 28-22 at halftime despite going the final 7:01 without making a field goal.

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.

Steelers to bring back Harrison

After losing a pair of starting linebackers to injuries in their last game, the Pittsburgh Steelers are set to bring back a familiar face.
