Alabama 71, Auburn 61
*Auburn shot 33.3% in the second half, 37.1% overall.
*Alabama shot 60% in the second half, 49% overall. Easy enough.
*It's clear to me -- or to anyone who watches this team regularly -- that Auburn needs more size inside. Kids like Jermareo Davidson and Richard Hendrix are too bulky for Vot Barber and Josh Dollard. It's not their fault. They're only so big.
So what do the Tigers have coming in next season?
A 6-foot-4 combo guard named Kelvin Lewis and 6-6 forward Lucas Hargrove. Lewis is a scorer. Hargrove has the body of a shooting guard but the skills of a forward. Neither player is going to grab rebounds over guys like Glen Davis or Davidson.
I don't get it.
It's too early to condemn Lebo, he seems to have a plan on the court, but his recruiting decisions are curious.
