Auburn basketball: Leading scorer Bryce Brown will play vs. Kentucky

AUBURN, Ala. — Bryce Brown, Auburn basketball’s top scorer, will make his return from injury — in some capacity — Wednesday night against Kentucky.

Brown will “give it a go” and try to play against the Wildcats, a school spokesperson confirmed to SEC Country. The junior from Stone Mountain, Ga., missed No. 10 Auburn’s win at Georgia last Saturday with a strained right shoulder, an injury he suffered last Wednesday against Texas A&M.

The news that Brown will play against Kentucky was first reported Wednesday evening by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. It’s unknown whether Brown will start or come off the bench.

Brown returned to practice Monday afternoon and went through a non-contact session. He was scheduled to practice with full contact Tuesday afternoon, according to Auburn coach Bruce Pearl.

Brown leads Auburn with 16.6 points per game this season. The junior also leads the SEC with 81 made 3-point field goals.

The Auburn spokesperson said the team would have a more detailed update on Brown closer to tipoff. The Tigers face the Wildcats at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on ESPN2.

SEC Country will update this story.
