Florida @ Auburn, 1st half

We're live blogging the Auburn @ Florida men's game from Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.

  • THE NUMBERS

    Shooting
    AUB 14-33 (42.4%)
    FLA 17-33 (51.5%)

    3 Shooting
    AUB 1-13 (7.7%)
    FLA 1-7 (14.3%)

    Rebounding
    AUB 12 (4o, 8d)
    FLA 22 (7o, 15d)

  • HALFTIME
    Florida leads, 40-34. Auburn finished 1-of-13 from three-point range in that half and trails by only six points. That's not too bad. Florida isn't shooting particularly well, either. Defense is going to be the difference -- can Auburn stop Calathes?

  • FOURTH TO @ 3:20
    Florida leads, 32-24. Your Auburn Tigers are 0-for-11 from three-point range right now. Lebo wants them to keep on shootin'. Auburn cannot keep pace with Calathes. He's beating them downcourt on the break and beating them off the dribble. Does Auburn have anyone who can guard a good, 6-foot-5 point guard?

  • THIRD TO @ 6:58
    Florida leads, 25-18. Auburn is having real trouble staying with Calathes off the dribble. I don't think the Tigers yet understand that he can drive to his left. Auburn seems more in tune defensively now. Florida, honestly, doesn't have a lot of play-makers. If Calathes gets stunted, Auburn could have a chance here.

  • Second TO @ 11:55
    Florida leads, 17-10. Tay Waller is still 0-fer. Auburn is zoning more, which is preventing UF from getting the easy lay-ups. They're firing away from the outside and not hitting at the moment. I'm sure that will come around at some point. Nick Calathes is a really good player. Wow.

  • First TO @ 15:50
    Florida leads, 11-4. Auburn's plan was to get the ball to Tay Waller. He's 0-for-4 right now. Florida already has two lay-ups from its quarter-court set. You know what that means -- defensive problems o'plenty.

  • Your Auburn starters:
    F -- Lucas Hargrove
    F/C -- Korvotney Barber aka Barber Shop
    "SF" -- Tay Waller
    "SG" -- Q-Tez Robertson
    PG -- "Speed" Reed aka DeWayne

Florida is "down" and Auburn is "up" this season, too.

ok, AU is getting whupped without me watching. So I can safely go turn the game on and it won't be my fault if AU loses, but I can take credit if they win.
GO TIGERS!!!

Survivor? Idol? It would be easier for me to tolerate a root canal.

7:36 PM  
Blogger BinOBA said...

cool , my wife and i watch a lot of survivor. 360 has it blacked out here so no watchy. Travel channel right now.

root canals are underrated--unless you have seinfeld's dentist.

This would be close if Auburn could hit ANYTHING from beyond the ARC

Does anyone have an opinion of the 2 that interviewed for the OL coach position?

Griff is not around to comment of course.

AU is up?

7:44 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Don't know much about them, AU1.

Based on what little I know, Grimes is more accomplished.

Grimes doesn't impress me... his O-lines at MSU have been very porous over the past few years...

Campbell is a bit more of an unknown...

I ask about the 2 because I have seen some good comments but know nothing about them.

AU1 - I'm so jealous. I didn't get center ice because I was afraid my daughter would drive home from college (35 min) all the time to watch the Pens

7:48 PM

Phred, I actually am too, I wakeboarded in high school and hhave used the alias ever since. I actually skied on the Auburn Ski team for a while.

This is nothing like the Fl-AU game in Auburn I went to in 07. UF KILLED us with the 3, they were hitting everything. That was one of hte few Bball games I went to while I was there.

8:08 PM

AU has a ski team?

8:10 PM

High Anxiety on HBO, Harvey Corman......what a hoot.

Shouldn't one of your names be "Huffington" if you are on a ski team ?

I kid , I kid.

Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Yep, its a club sport like Rugby or Lacrosse, very little school funding.

We won the Div 2 National championships a few years ago.

8:14 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

wow... I had no idea... Congrats (late) on the championship...

Apparently there is a new thread, heaading over there.
