The No. 13 Auburn Tigers take on the No. 22 Kentucky Wildcats today at home inside Neville Arena.

Auburn is looking to build on its 101-61 win over No. 11 South Carolina. Kentucky is looking to get back on track after dropping four of its last seven games.

What are four things to watch for during the game?

Which Kentucky guard(s) will step up?

Kentucky has four different guards who average double figures.

Senior Antonio Reeves leads the Wildcats in scoring with 19.4 points per game, freshman Rob Dillingham averages 14. 8 points, freshman Reed Sheppard averages 12.4 points and freshman D.J. Wagner averages 11.2 points.

Each player is capable of taking over a game. At least one of them will step up and make an impact in the game today.

Will Johni Broome and Jaylin Williams take over again?

Auburn's forward duo has been dominant this season.

Broome leads Auburn in scoring with 16.2 points per game and in rebounding with 8.4 per game. He also shoots 55.4% from the field and has added a 3-point shot to his game this season.

Williams is Auburn's second-highest scorer with 13.4 points per game. He also averages 4.9 rebounds per game and shoots 59% from the field.

Auburn's frontcourt has the capability to take the team a long way this season.

How will Auburn shoot the ball?

Auburn is shooting 46.9% from the field and 33.8% from 3-point range currently.

The Tigers had their best shooting performance of the season against South Carolina, shooting 61% from the field and 60% from beyond the arc.

If Auburn can have a shooting performance remotely close to that against Kentucky, it will have a good chance to win the game.

How will Kentucky handle the crowd?

Neville Arena has gained a reputation as one of the toughest venues to play in throughout all of college basketball.

Members of Auburn's student section, known as "The Jungle," began camping outside of the Arena immediately after the South Carolina game to ensure a spot in line for the game.

This will likely be the most hostile environment that Kentucky will play in this season.

Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. CT. The television broadcast can be found on ESPN, and the Auburn Sports Network broadcast can be streamed anywhere on the Auburn Athletics app.
