Kyle Wiltjer's 14 points led five Kentucky players in double figures as the Wildcats outlasted Auburn 72-62 Saturday for their fifth straight win. Though tighter than the Wildcats' 75-53 beating of the Tigers three weeks ago at Auburn, the victory provided their longest winning streak this season and some momentum before Tuesday's Southeastern Conference showdown at first-place Florida. The Wildcats (17-6, 8-2) began the day a game behind the Gators. Kentucky survived physical and sometimes chippy play by Auburn, which saw center Rob Chubb and backup Asauhn Dixon-Tatum foul out. The Wildcats made 26 of 38 free throws to beat Auburn for the 15th straight time. Ryan Harrow and Willie Cauley-Stein each added 12 points, while Julius Mays and Nerlens Noel had 10 apiece. Noel added 11 rebounds for his third straight double-double but blocked his only shot in the final minutes. Chris Denson's 15 points led Auburn (9-14, 3-7).
