Auburn comes into the game on a 4 game losing streak. The last team they beat.... us in that EPIC 49-37 debacle that probably killed any real chance we had at an AT LARGE berth (and LSU buried it). They lost a heartbreaker @ Ole Miss 88-55 on Saturday.
Jordan Price and Noel Johnson are the only ones to watch outside. the rest of them are AUful out there. Rob Chubb is their leading rebounder with Frankie Sullivan and Chris Denson leading the way at 14.7 and 11.3 PPG each. Not a whole lot to write about them as THEY SUCK. Not as much as Mi$$i$$ippi $tate, but nevertheless... they really suck. They suck so bad that Barbee juggles his starting lineup more times than Joan Rivers gets plastic surgery.
Shaquille Johnson had a nice game @ Ole Miss (18pts on 7-11 shooting). He was the only one to hit double digits. Like I said, they suck, but being that this is a 'rivalry' game they'll probably come out energized to spoil whatever chance we have at making the NCAAT (far fetched as it is now as an AT LARGE team).
- .411 FG
- .325 3pt FG
- dead even rebound margin
- 7.1 steals
We struggled with Mi$$ $tate and after the heartbreaking loss @ LSU I suspect the team will be down. I fully expect a 55-48 game.
Game time is 7PM EST on ESPNU. I'll be listening to it on internet radio.
