Vanderbilt def. Auburn, 82-75.
Post No. 1,020
Welcome to Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.
Vanderbilt wins, 82-75.
- AUBURN TO @ 1:23
Vanderbilt leads, 76-72. A pair of three-point shots from Beal have given the Commodores a big boost.
- AUBURN TO @ 4:30
Vanderbilt leads, 70-67. Ogilvy, Vanderbilt's big center, is getting assertive and working Auburn near the basket.
- SECOND TO @ 11:58
Vanderbilt leads, 54-50. Auburn has lots if verve -- and its shooting touch. The Commodores aren't really abusing near the basket like they were early in the game, but this Jermaine Beal character is hitting shots from all over.
- FIRST TO @ 15:58
Tied at 48. Auburn has scored on five of its first six possessions to open the half. Not too shabby. There's a different level of energy out there right now.
- Football recruit David Oku is here. A few kids in the student section started cheering his name and Oku didn't mind. He began leading the chorus. Funny.
- This is the "Red Panda Acrobat," who performed at halftime. While riding a unicycle, she was kicking bowls from her feet to her head. And she'd stack 'em 12 high. It's a miracle.
Vanderbilt leads, 41-36. Auburn scored three points on each of its final three possessions of the first half -- Barber with the "and one", Barrett with a three, Sullivan with a three.
- FOURTH TO @ 3:01
Vanderbilt leads, 38-27. Same basic concept. Lett is showing some signs of life on the offensive end.
- THIRD TO @ 7:28 (I missed the second one with Washington stuff)
Vanderbilt leads, 29-19. Auburn is having a difficult time defending in the post. The Commodores have three big guys and they're getting plenty of opportunities. Barber and Johnnie Lett seem ill-equipped to handle the barrage.
- Reed has checked in.
- FIRST TO @ 15:51
Vanderbilt leads, 9-3. Scintillating start for the Tigers. They are 1-for-8 right now. PG DeWayne Reed apparently was a late arrival and has been benched as a result. More on that later.
- Your Auburn Tigers starters:
F/C -- Korvotney Barber
F -- Lucas Hargrove
SF -- Rasheem Barrett
SG -- Tay Waller
PG -- Tez Robertson
