Auburn def. Kentucky, 81-69

THURSDAY NIGHT
Post No. 1,054

We're live at Beard-Eaves Memorial Coluseum tonight for women's basketball. My camera battery is dead, so today's photo is actually from a game played earlier this season. So it goes.
  • FINAL
    Auburn wins, 81-69.

  • FOURTH TO @ 3:51, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 73-63. Kentucky keeps running the same play on offense and it works. They're lobbing the ball in to Eleia Roddy. Auburn is front guarding her. Nobody is in the back. So the ball sails over that front defender, Roddy catches the pass and it's an easy bucket. Over and over and over.

  • THIRD TO @ 7:10, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 68-55. Kentucky was in complete control there for a bit. They built an 11-0 run, cut the home team's lead to eight points. Since then, though, Auburn has scored on five consecutive possessions.

  • SECOND TO @ 11:33, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 59-47. The Tigers have made several passing mistakes than have ended possessions. Kentucky is playing with much more conviction on offense now. They're getting second-chance points because of aggressive rebounding. Looks like a different team.

  • FIRST TO @ 15:36, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 57-37. Kentucky changed its offensive approach and now is trying to score inside. It's working. They're scoring. The problem remains: UK can't stop Auburn. The Tigers are transitioning the visitors to death.

  • HALFTIME NUMBERS
    Shooting
    AUB -- 62% (21-of-34)
    KEN -- 33% (11-of-33)

    3 shooting
    AUB -- 33% (1-of-3)
    KEN -- 37% (4-of-11)

    FT shooting
    AUB -- 100% (4-of-4)
    KEN -- 50% (1-of-2)

    Fast-break points
    AUB -- 8
    KEN -- 0

  • From Auburn women's basketball publicist Matt Crouch:
    Prior to Thursday's Auburn women's basketball game against Kentucky, Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik spoke to the team in the locker room.
  • HALFTIME
    Auburn leads, 47-27. The Tigers' shooting percentage has to be out of sight. It was 70% with three minutes remaining in the half. I'll update when I get the information.

  • FOURTH TO @ 3:18
    Auburn leads, 41-20. You can see where this is going. The Tigers are on a 27-5 run. Kentucky can't defend anything tonight ... particularly in transition.

  • THIRD TO @ 7:40
    Auburn leads, 29-17. The Tigers scored on six of the seven possessions since we last spoke. You get the picture. Not sure what to tell you beyond ... Auburn players are open everywhere.

  • SECOND TO @ 11:53
    Auburn leads, 16-12. The Tigers were sloppy during those first few possessions. Not so much now. Auburn has scored on seven of its last nine possessions. Kentucky looks pretty small to me. Bonner already is going up over their front-court players for rebounds. Gotta be frustrating.

  • YOUR AUBURN LINEUP
    PG -- Whitney Boddie of Alabama
    SG -- Alli Smalley of Alabama
    SF -- Sherell Hobbs of Alabama
    PF -- DeWanna Bonner of Alabama
    C -- Trevesha Jackson of Alabama

Jay GT- excellent coverage this afternoon. And thanks so much for the live blogging. I LOVE it!

6! I'm late...thanks for blogging it since there's no other way to get an update without the ESPN scroll. Go Lady tigers!

This is just wrong.

Auburn now up 41-20.

Thanks for reading and supporting the HABOTN, THT!

Interesting that the entire starting line-up for the women is from Alabama, and none of the men's starters are from Alabama. Is that a telling statistic, or just a fluke?

6:37 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Telling statistic.

Thanks JGT for the coaches comments. Great work. And I love the live info on those lady tigers. War Eagle!

Auburn leads 47-27 at half.

These gals are good

6:43 PM  
Blogger TarHeelTiger (JaySr) said...

The only thing that's "wrong" is we gave up a point off that 41-20 lead ;-)

GO TIGERS!!!!

Apparently, Chizik spoke with the team prior to tipoff.

Why? I have no idea. Maybe he's hoping some of their mojo rubs off on him.

6:50 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Do you mean Chizik spoke to the women? Is he trying to find out how to win?

6:51 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Maybe he's stumping for AD

6:51 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Do you think Gus spoke to the men last night?

6:52 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Maybe he was trying to recruit them.

Beat. Down.

Dr. Habotn, SGiW for future President Jet is conjuring up his "medical platform" for the citizens of this great country.

The "prime directive" will be that all citizens should partake in healthy (as in large) daily doses of HABOTN and ice cream. Forget the apple a day. With my proposed plan, we'll all be so healthy we won't even need doctors. Except Dr. Habotn, of course.

I like to see the football coaches out supporting the other sports teams. Seems like a positive move for all involved.

6:57 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Did ya'll see where there is a lady from Auburn on Survivor tonight?

6:58 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Wow...should the men be taking FT lessons from the ladies?

6:59 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

WEG, Mrs Beebe is the woman from Auburn. She is the principal at Drake Middle School in Auburn. Super lady.

7:01 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

That would be Debbie on the show, WEG.

7:04 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

Those are some great half time stats. Sure wish the men and women could do that consistently.

my mom used to teach at wright's mill and has met her a time or two.

7:08 PM

Kentucky's PF, Victoria Dunlap, is King Dunlap's little sister.

Auburn's lead now down 12.

7:12 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

Someone give the Tigers some smelling salts.

WAKE UP!!!

7:24 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Lead back up to 13.

7:24 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

I'm surprised how fast the basketball games fly by when I'm keeping track via HABOTN. One would think it would seem to take forever when you're just "watching" via a blog. The fact that the opposite is true is undoubtedly the result of our Fearless Leader's outstanding coverage and blogawesomeness.

7:34 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

Jay GT- any chance we can get V Dunlap to transfer (schools and teams)? Is she a chip off the ol' brother? Any OL potential there?

7:35 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

Curious why AU hasn't adjusted their defense. I guess as long as they keep a safe lead they can keep the "super duper defensive adjustment strategy" in the can for when they really need it.

7:38 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

AU wins, 81-69.

7:40 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

WARRRRRRRRR EAGLE!!!! HEY!!!!

War EAgle to the Ladies! Can't wait for the tournament!

7:41 PM

Wish we could bottle up their discipline and energy for all our sports teams

7:42 PM  
Blogger Dr. HABOTN (JaySr) said...

Jay GT - thanks again for great coverage. THTjr and I are going to play P-I-G. I'll check back in a bit.

7:43 PM  
Blogger ehyoutiger said...

Thanks JGT. Superb coverage as usual.

Of course in Macon tonight I've got UA @ UT, MSU @ UM & UF @ Vandy. If they're gonna show 3 SEC women's BB games, you'd think one of them could be Auburn. Oh well.

7:45 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

Three SEC women's games on my TV tonight on Knologump cable, but not the Fightin' Fortners. Ugh.

Denny's U of L team getting beat like Mondale.

7:49 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thanks for riding along this evening. The HABOTN steam train goin' wooooooooooooo.

7:49 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Where is Denny Crum? Haven't seen him a while.

7:50 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

He made a pop in visit the other day ...

Another point ... can we tell Mike Brey that the collarless shirt thing went out quite a ways back?

7:51 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Mike Brey still coaches?

He's at Delaware?

7:52 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

He coaches at Our Lady of Willingham and Weis.

7:53 PM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

Jay how did I miss you tonight? Were you sitting on the floor, I didnt see you at the table? The Ladies made it a bit uneasy towards the end but Hobbs and Boddie saved the day!

8:14 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I was on the other end today ... near the Auburn bench. I like listening to Nell complain.

8:17 PM  
Blogger Jay said...

With all the crap on TV nowadays, the cancellations of Futurama and Arrested Development can never be justified.

8:21 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

On one of the Cinemax channels is the worst "sports" movies ever ... The Replacements. Don't watch it.
