The Auburn Tigers hadn’t beaten the Kentucky Wildcats in basketball since 2009 and hadn’t beaten a ranked opponent since 2012. On Saturday, the team got their biggest win under Bruce Pearl when they beat the Wildcats, 75-70.
It was a big day for the Tigers and the fans in Auburn Arena didn’t really care about the $50,000 fine that the school would get slapped with. So after the big win, they did what any fans would do and stormed the court.
That is certainly a way to celebrate a big win. The Tigers haven’t been to the NCAA Tournament since 2003 and are 8-8 this year, which means they probably won’t be getting there in March either.
However, Pearl certainly has this team back on the right track and it’s going to be a glorious run for this team.
