    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Jodie Meeks and Patrick Patterson did it again.

    Meeks scored 32 points and Patterson added 21 points and a career-high 18 rebounds to lead sloppy Kentucky to a 73-64 victory over Auburn on Wednesday night.

    The stars combined for 10 points during a decisive 12-0 run late in the second half as the Wildcats (15-4, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) overcame 22 turnovers to beat the Tigers (11-7, 1-3) for the 10th straight time.

    Perry Stevenson had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Kentucky, which moved into first-place in the SEC after No. 24 Florida and Mississippi State both lost earlier in the day.

    DeWayne Reed led Auburn with 22 points and Rasheem Barrett added a career-high 17 for the Tigers, who were outscored 26-2 at the free-throw line.
