Auburn (10-8/2-3) visits Tuscaloosa to take on OUR Crimson tide (12-6/2-3)
This is a big game for both teams. Both are coming off disappointing losses... us to Arkansas in OT and the Barn to M$U at home. Auburn has yet to win a road game so we have that going for us.
I think DJC and I have harped on this before, but I'm going to go on a small rant about HAVING A FOOTBALL TROPHY PRESENTATION at halftime of the basketball game. I hate this... no I DESPISE THIS "tradition" as I see it as a slight on basketball. I don't remember attending a game @ BDS where the basketball team was showcased at halftime. It's a bad rub and reinforces that hoops is just passing the time between football season and the ogling of HS kids (recruiting). I wonder if there are other SEC rivalries that do this... I can't think of one.
KT Harrell and Antoine Mason (son of one of my favorite ex-NY Knicks Anthony) lead the way with 17.2 and 14.0 PPG. Cinmeon Bowers is one to watch on the boards as he's averaging a double-double (13.4/11.6) for the year. Jordon Granger is one to watch beyond the arc as he's hitting 44% beyond the arc.
Note- Bruce Pearl is 5-3 all-time vs Alabama.
- 67.9 PPG and 68.0 PPG allowed
- -3.5 rebound margin
- 16.1 turnovers/game forced
Game is on the SEC Network.
