Changing it up as this is a dreadful matchup between two bad teams that means nothing in the scope of the SEC... here's a Barner article on 'if they win, the people will come.'
Auburn is 13-13... we are 11-16. Both of us are 5-10 in conference and sitting in the 11th position (only M$U and SC Lite are worse). Neither team has an inside game. Auburn is on a one game winning streak. We are on a one game losing streak. If we weren't fans no one would know we play tomorrow.
Auburn does have a road win (@ SC Lite) so they got a shot. Saying that, 4 of their 5 wins in conference have come against teams in the 11-14 range (they did beat UGA).
- +1.8 scoring margin
- 44.8% FG and 31.2% 3pt FG
- -.6 rebound margin
- Only lost 1 SEC game by more than 12 points (@ Arkansas)
Chris Denson and KT Harrell score roughly half of the Barn's PPG. Both also pull down 4 boards a game. Keep both of them in check and we win... allow both to score their average and we in trouble. Tatum should have his way inside if Auburn wants to try. I doubt they do.
Prediction- I imagine it being close throughout with Releford saving us in the last 2 minutes as we win by 4.
Game is on ESPNU at 3PM EST (2PM CST). I'm going to miss all of it due to baseball games... that might be a blessing.
