Overall Game Analysis
Auburn played a gritty game - particularly on defense. They force Kentucky to beat them with anyone else but Washington and they were not able to do it. They had their own offensive lulls and poor decisions, but they did enough to hang on in overtime.

Bryce Brown (2)
SG 
A- 
He carried the team for a portion of the 2nd half and kept them afloat. As Harper heated back up he faded a bit. But still had a big impact on the game. My MVP runner-up.
Danjel Purifoy (3)
PF 
Decision-making at times was suspect, but he played good overall defense in this one.

He had a lull in the game where he disappeared. But he got hot late when them needed him and he sealed the game for them.

Comments On Defense
Great game on defense! They really caused problems for Kentucky. The Wildcats had trouble scoring without the ball in Washington's hands.
