“It’s what won the Alabama game and it's what won the game tonight, our second half defense,” Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said.
It was senior day for Auburn Volleyball but the No. 8 Kentucky Wildcats were too much for the Tigers, winning their fifth straight match in straight sets 3-0.
The Tigers were in control for most of the scoreless first half but two huge goals in the second half made all the difference.
This will be the Tigers' first match since their loss to No. 1 Florida State and Georgia is currently on a six-match win streak.
Auburn had 49 total shots and 18 shots on goal while the Bulldogs finished the match with zero shots.
On Friday, junior guard Allen Flanagan underwent a successful procedure to repair his right Achilles after suffering non-basketball related trauma.
