Auburn leads, 42-35. Auburn's defense slopped it up during the final five minutes. Alabama now is back in the game. Stats coming.
Auburn leads, 35-25. Same ol. Auburn is markedly sloppier, but Alabama is kinda lost without Ronald Steele to guide things along. Alabama is doing a nice job with defensive rebounding. Auburn isn't getting many second-chance opportunities.
Auburn leads, 31-20. The Tigers have gotten a little sloppy. Barber attempted a risky alley-oop pass on a break that Hargrove couldn't finish. LeBron James couldn't have finished on that pass, either. Alabama doesn't have much of a plan. I don't see a go-to guy there. Auburn doesn't have one, either, but Auburn's defense is better than Alabama's.
Auburn leads, 26-12. Auburn is playing very well right now. Lucas Hargrove, the 6-foot-6 "forward" just blocked a shot from 6-9 Justin Knox. The swat started a fast break that Frankie Sullivan handled. The Tigers have Alabama well defended right now.
Auburn leads, 23-6. What a surge. Reed hit the shot on which he was fouled, hit the two intentional-foul free throws, Auburn retained possession, Frankie Sullivan hit a three, Alabama turned it over and Tay Waller hit a three. Talk about an avalanche of badness for the Tide.
Auburn leads, 15-6. Tigers have scored on six of their first eight possessions. Alabama was just called for an intentional foul. Reed, who was fouled, made the shot. I've never seen that before.
