The Crimson Tide travel to the Barn... e i e i o.
Auburn stats pack
Auburn is much improved from last year... they have big wins over Nichols St, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee. Their 2 home losses were to top 10 teams (A&M absolutely killed them, but they played Pitt tough). They also played Wisconsin and Oklahoma State tough in the South Padre tournament. Now that I look at it, they played a much tougher non-conference schedule than us. Who knew?
- 45% FG
- 33% 3PT FG
- 60% FT
- +.5 rebound margin
- average 17 turnover a game
I've only seen them once... getting hammered at Kentucky last week. They did beat Tennessee for their 1st win against a ranked team in 16 tries so I guess they're on somewhat of a role.
Barrett is their leading scorer... he should be being he's taken 70 shots more than anyone else. Prowell is their transfer from Furman... he seems to be their best shooter. The rest of them I know little to nothing about.
I'd say we need to pound the ball inside, but we haven't been good in there lately. Still we should try JD and RH as we have the size advantage.
We still own Auburn in basketball (football is another story) and they don't have the weapons outside that can kill us. Crimson Tide by 6 in a close one. Truth be told, we really need a road win... REALLY, REALLY NEED A ROAD WIN.
Gametime is 9PM EST (8PM CST) on ESPN. It's not in HD.
