Auburn def. Tennessee, 82-68

SUNDAY AFTERNOON
Post No. 1,001

Hey everyone. Welcome to what was the most populated Auburn women's game in history. Official attendance was 12,059.

The arena can't hold more.

  • Auburn 82, Tennessee 68.

  • HABOTN PLAYER OF THE GAME®
    PF DeWanna Bonner -- 35 points (14-of-16 at the line), 9 rebounds, 6 steals

  • Auburn now is 20-0 overall and 5-0 in the SEC.

  • 1:33, 2nd half (Auburn calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 73-63.
    Hold the phone. Tennessee is on a 13-0 run.

  • 2:59, 2nd half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 73-55.
    See score above.

  • 4:04, 2nd half (Auburn calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 73-52.
    See score above.

  • 6:54, 2nd half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 64-46.
    Trevesha Jackson just nailed an and-one. Tennessee can't counter this enthusiasm ... and Summitt is stewing on the sideline. She's done all she can do. It's rare that UT takes a beating like this.

  • 10:00, 2nd half (Tennessee calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 60-41.
    Auburn is demolishing this team.

  • 11:34, 2nd half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 55-41.
    Tennessee seems so much weaker now. All those freshman, all these people here, all that experience on the other team.

  • 12:34, 2nd half (Tennessee calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 55-39.
    Every mistake Tennessee makes now, Auburn pounces and scores.

  • 15:15, 2nd half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads 44-33.
    Boddie is commanding this game. Tennessee has nobody who can stick with her shakes. It's playground time. Boddie is at the line for a 1-and-1 right now.

  • 16:46, 2nd half (Tennessee calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 41-31.
    Summitt knows her team is getting worked by Whitney Boddie and Bonner right now. Bonner scored on an and-one. Boddie stole a UT pass and now she's at the line for another and-one. Tennessee can't do much with Bonner right now. She's a unique defensive challenge.

  • HALFTIME STATS
    Shooting
    AUB -- 10-27 37.0%
    TEN -- 12-25 48.0%

    3 shooting
    AUB -- 2-9 22.2%
    TEN -- 2-11 18.2%

    FT shooting
    AUB -- 9-12 75.0%
    TEN -- 0-0 (nil)

    Rebounding
    AUB -- 15 (8o, 7d)
    TEN -- 16 (6o, 10d)

  • HALFTIME
    Auburn leads, 31-26.

  • 1:17, 1st half (Tennessee calls timeout) -- Auburn leads, 27-23.
    DeWanna Bonner is working UT badly right now. Pat Summitt had enough.

  • 3:43, 1st half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 22-19.
    Pretty static. Auburn got some use out of KeKe Carrier, but she's out of gas now. The Tigers can't get much going offensively. Tennessee's zone is too much right now. Tennessee is trying to work inside -- with mixed success.

  • 7:35, 1st half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 17-13.
    Neither team can get much going offensively. They have plans; the defensive intensity on both ends is overpowering. Tennessee is getting offensive rebounds. Auburn is creating turnovers. That's the only thing helping either team score.

  • 11:46, 1st half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 12-9.
    Tennessee has committed seven turnovers already. The Tigers still only lead by three points.

  • 15:58, 1st half (media timeout) -- Auburn leads, 7-4.

YOUR AUBURN STARTERS
C -- Trevesha Jackson of Auburn, Ala.
PF -- DeWanna Bonner of suburban Birmingham
SF -- Sherell Hobbs of Huntsville
SG -- Alli Smalley of Arab
PG -- Whitney Boddie of Florence

Carrier seems to be a step slow on the defensive end also, I appreciate the 6'9 size but wondering if her insertion disrupts the flow of AU's game on the offensive end of the court too much? I am overall impressed with this AU team reminds me of the good ol' days with Joe C

Just got back in from the game. Great crowd. Forgot it was general admission and wound up 4 rows formthe top to accomodate 8 people together. Still it was awsome to see the ladies play tonight. TN did nt ogive up and we got sloppy when Smalley came out and decided to milk the clock. TN had one girl that could launch three's and then drove the ball coast to coast a few times. they will be good next year as they have 0 seniors I believe.

Just got back from the Lady Tigers basketball game. Just thought I would throw out a few things that I saw while there.
1). This team can shoot free throws. Might be the best free throw team I have ever seen in person(and that goes for the pros also).

2). Lets just hope the future games do not come down to Keke on the free throw line. Can you say Lady Shaq? If it wasn't for her, our free throw percentage would be close to 100 percent.

3). Bonner is the best player I have seen play in that arena...Ever. She will definitely be a star in the WNBA after this season. She will be missed next year.

4). Smalley will be a future star in the league the next few years.

5). For all the people that say "why build a huge arena, Auburn will never support basketball".....today just goes to show you that if you have a good team, this place can rock for a basketball game.

Blogger Denny Crum said...

I was there, had to let some college kids know that holding seats wasn't going to get it done with me. They probably thought I was the biggest A-hole in the world. But at my age, some punk kid isn't going to tell me I can't sit down because he is holding the seat for some late arrival.. Ok, I feel better.

Now. Auburn looked so much more dominant today. Complete role reversal. A look at the roster of the instate talent tells me that Nell FOrtner has figured out that the women's talent in Alabama is in the North part of the state.


The player that makes this team go is Allie Smalley. Pure and Simple. I know Bonner got the points, but Smalley is the straw that stirs the drink. Fortner knows it too.

Carrier is 6'7'. Other than that she is out of shape, has poor footwork, bad anticipation, and is l-a-z-y. After about 3 or 4 times down the court and she GASSED. Guard play and transition basketball won the day in my mind for the Lady Tigers. That and mixing up the defense. I was very surprised how much trouble just switching from man to zone to a match-up back to a zone cause Tennessee's Guards.

Additionally, Tennessee turned it over early alot and you could tell that Auburn had frustrated them. Auburn was able to anticipate Tennessee's passes ( it helped that they were lazy passes).

I didn't think it was so much that TN was down as Auburn was just that much better. Auburn is the #6 team in the nation you know.

Anyway...I was pleased with the product. It helps that Nell is recruiting North Alabama, the basketball is just head and shoulders better than the rest of the state. She has kids that not only can play, but know and most importantly, respect the game.

Guys I wish we would have coordinated a meeting spot for all the Hotties in the House today but who knew there would be a million people at the game??

North Alabama is the spot for women's spots in general I think. A good friend of mine is in Huntsville and his daughter is being recruited in basketball by most of the big programs...and she is 14!

Denny they try that set saving mess during football season in the student section too. I saw several incidents involving frats and one with the swim team (of all groups).

Can Nell Fortner coach the men for the rest of the year? I dont think I've ever seen Pat summit get out coached but she had her hands full today.

Isn't it wonderful!? My daughter graduated from Auburn on May 10, 2007 and got married May 19. It was a whirlwind, but sooooo much fun. Made me want to be young again - not that I'm old :)

DoWhat?: I took down the Rollison Facebook page. I just now saw it. Had a HOTTIE's name on the page and I just didn't feel good about it.

everyone quotes jay, he is the omniscient force of auburn athletics.

i hate to rain on the parade, but rollison won't qualify. i can see into the future.

Sponge in the hot house. ABC news says Rollison committed to AU on his facebook page. That what you guys talking about? He may not qualify, but it gives AU a little momentum going into signing day

JGT--I don't post often but I try to read as much as I can in between class etc. You should come get crazy with the Lunatics (well, maybe not as much for TX-Pan Am). Watch out for the super shakers in the student section. I've got one--where is yours?

Yes, unless you are Tony Franklin.

Top ten for Tony Franklin:

1. How to make a half million bucks while being a dumbass.

2. Sure, I'll get lost. See you in the unemployment line Tommy.

Fellow Hotties,

I was present for the Auburn vs. Tennessee women's basketball game today and let me just say that I was overcome with emotion at the support. Sold out crowd, I got chills multiple times during the game. Boddie is....I'm going to say it....the best point guard in the SEC if not the nation. I have respect for her because that's my old position. She's the shizz...rhymes with Chizz. War Eagle everyone. I love you all!

Way to go Lady Tigers! Who knew when we bought the tickets back in Nov. that they'd be going into that game undefeated? It was our first ever and it was FANTASTIC! They are so exciting to watch.

Great job by the ladies yesterday and all the fans that attended. Big ups to all.


Football seems to have had a good weekend, and I look forward to the commitments going public and on the record.

David Denby, Author of Snark, is on the CBS Early Show. He said being snarky is bad. I think he would disapprove of Monica.

lol @ facebook etiquette. the fact that someone would even dream that such exists is funny.

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Oh, I remember back in 1994 when I commited to Auburn as a student. I didn't do it on facebook or at a press conference, I just filled out a ton of paperwork, took some tests and mailed a check.

Come to think of it, I'm still mailing checks for that college education.

Looking back, maybe I should have announced my intentions to go to Auburn in one of those early archaic chat rooms of the time.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

AUant, I had no idea.

Missed opportunity for me to get my old Bengals jersey signed.

In a related story, I just won an eBay auction for a sweet Ki-Jana Carter jersey.

Did anyone see the article where Saban told AJ McCarron and Trent Richardson not to visit UT? McCarron told the reporter that Saban didn't think it would look right and he wasn't "comfortable" with them visiting UT and Lance Thompson. I've heard of borderline prospects being told these things, but what is he going to do, pull offers to these guys if they visit?

By the way, Pat Summitt can kiss my ass.

I don't need a damn Tennessee Vols coach telling me how to support an Auburn team.

Worry about your own orange wagon, Pat.

War Damn Eagle!

Jay, congratulations on the Carter jersey. I can imagine some fierce competition for old Bengals merchandise.

Gnome,

Why the hatred for Pat Summit? I've delt with her several times and have seen nothing but class from her.

8:53 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Jay G,

You need to find a good David Klingler or Jim Breech jersey.

8:57 AM  
Blogger AUnMobilz (GAME ON!) said...

WE RK,
it's because Pat Summitt made this statement after the ball game
"It's about time these Auburn fans got into the gym and watched the women play basketball," Summitt said. "Nell has done a great job. She's got a great team."

8:58 AM  
Blogger MillerTime said...

Dang AUnMobilz. Who p'd in your cheerios this morning?

Kidding of course.
Seriously though, that was almost too perky for a Monday morning.
Morning all. Someone please deliver good news today and just help me get through it.

Summit's comment was spot on though.

I consider Pat Summitt the best basketball coach, men or women, of all time.

I consider her credible.

She's earned the right to be cross or pious or whatever that was yesterday.

There wasn't anything Pat Summitt said that wasn't true. I don't see where there is any need for the anger.

If it wasn't 2 hours away and all women's games were either during the week or on a Sunday, I'd be at every game. Nell has done an absolutely fantastic job, so I will definitely be attending more games.

Blogger Jet N. Fuego said...

Pat is the Summit of coaches ... and she can be the Summit of Snarkiness, too.

Truth is the most painful of weapons.

It's been three years since i've been to a hoops game of any kind ... shame on me.

I also take her words as a not so subtle dig that they're still Tennessee and we're still Auburn.

9:17 AM

That's exactly how i took it also.
As if no big deal to Tennessee, they are use to it!

Sorry I was out of the loop all weekend. There were some parole violation issues.

Congrats on the big 1000 Mr. Jay G. Tate.

To respond to an earlier post: The Egan kid from Prattville, although he's an awesome kicker, has some academic issues. He would be a good addition to the team, but has a few things to work out. He's the only kicker I've ever seen called for unnecessary roughness. He knocked a kid from Daphne(I think) out for giving him the business on an extra point. When they lined up for the kickoff, Egan hunted him down.

Where do you rank John Wooden as a basketball coach if you think Pat is the all time best coach?

I consider Wooden to be the best COACH period of all time.
