​Someone in ​Auburn's frontcourt was going to have to step up in the wake of ​Chuma Okeke's injury, and Anfernee McLemore has answered the call. The long, athletic forward make his mark on this game with a nasty putback slam that cut Kentucky's lead to two late into the first half. 

​​McLemore is known more for his defense than his scoring, as he averages just 6.6 points per game. Still, with Okeke out, Bruce Pearl and Auburn needed to find a way to replace his scoring around the basket, and going with McLemore has proved wise so far. 


​​There's a lot of basketball left, but McLemore and Auburn aren't backing down from their SEC foe at all.
