Auburn braces for No. 2 Wildcats

By  | 

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Jeff Lebo is very familiar with No. 2
Kentucky's other freshman point guard.

The Auburn coach said Eric Bledsoe just keeps getting better.
Lebo estimates he saw the former Birmingham prep star play 15 or 20
times in summer league ball. The Tigers host Kentucky on Saturday,
three days after a 26-point loss at ninth-ranked Tennessee.

Bledsoe is coming off a career-best 25-point game against
Florida, though he has often been overshadowed by fellow Wildcats
freshman guard John Wall.

The Wildcats are off to their best start since opening 23-0 in

The Tigers, meanwhile, have 10-game losing streaks against both
Kentucky and Top 10 teams.
