GW @ Auburn (men), 2nd half
Auburn leads, 83-71.
Auburn leads, 76-69.
FOURTH TO @ 3:46:
Auburn leads, 68-62. They're still playing well -- particularly in transition. Frankie Sullivan is really good in chaotic situations. He's quick and has a refined idea of how to distribute. He'll be a good one.
Auburn leads, 64-57. Wow. Auburn actually is rolling along on the fast break and hitting shots from the perimeter. Everything is working right now.
THIRD TO @ 7:58:
GW leads, 57-56. Auburn still working much harder than it did during the first half. Much more energy directed toward rebounding. GW isn't getting good shots from the outside. Auburn has the momentum right now.
Auburn leads, 54-53, on a 3-point shot from Waller.
SECOND TO @ 11:33:
GW leads, 51-49. Auburn has made some nice defensive adjustments. They're still in man-to-man, but I'm seeing less switching. It's a true man defense and GW isn't getting any shots from the perimeter. Meanwhile, the Tigers are playing more competently on offense.
GW leads, 48-41. GW had to call timeout. Auburn has scored on four of its last five possessions. The Tigers are playing with significantly more effort now.
FIRST TO @ 15:53:
GW leads, 48-36. Auburn is hustling more on the offensive glass. The team already has two put-backs this half after getting none in the first half.
HALFTIME SCORE: GW leads, 44-29
