Second-seeded Kentucky's 77-71 overtime loss to shorthanded Auburn on Sunday evening will be remembered as an opportunity squandered. Only two days earlier, the Tigers lost their best interior scorer, rebounder and defender, Chuma Okeke, to a torn ACL in his left knee. It's worth noting that Auburn (30-9) has elevated its level of play during the past five weeks, reeling off 11 straight victories including upsets of Tennessee, Kansas and North Carolina.
