ASU at Auburn men
Auburn wins, 94-78.
FOURTH TIMEOUT @ 3:29, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 80-67. Still pretty lackluster. Auburn is better in transition and has connected on a few more shots. That's the difference. Neither of these teams are very good. Just being real with you.
SECOND TIMEOUT @ 11:51, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 62-53. Well, the Hornets are shooting well now. They have hit threes on three consecutive possessions. Auburn's transition defense is all out of sorts. You have to think the Tigers will pull this one out ... but that doesn't mean they're good. Yucky.
FIRST TIMEOUT @ 14:36, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 56-41. Tay Waller has eight points this half already. ASU has eight. I'll say this about Waller: He's the worst bad-shot shooter I've ever seen. He's always leaning one way or the other. It's cringe-worthy stuff -- but he connects on a lot of them. I don't know how he does it.
STATS OF NOTE
*Alabama State hit 2-of-14 from long range. Yummy.
*Auburn hit 15-of-18 from the free-throw line.
*Alabama State has 12 offensive rebounds. Auburn has one.
*27 fouls called.
Auburn leads, 46-33. Awful basketball.
FOURTH TIMEOUT @ 3:54, 1st half
Auburn leads, 36-21. Auburn is playing better in transition, slicing through a confused ASU defense for easy baskets or free throws. It's pretty simple. The Hornets can't shoot at all from the three-point range. Can't wait to see those numbers. They are stinky.
THIRD TIMEOUT @ 7:28, 1st half
Auburn leads, 27-20. Twenty fouls have been called. It's ugly basketball. Auburn looks better in transition and, honestly, all the ASU fouls give even a terrible three-throw shooting team a chance.
SECOND TIMEOUT @ 11:39, 1st half
Auburn leads, 18-12. Horrible basketball. Both teams are taking awkward shots (ASU's are worse) and committing silly fouls. There have been 15 fouls called already. Sloppy all the way around.
FIRST TIMEOUT @ 15:52, 1st half
Game tied at 8. Sloppy. Auburn already has fought over a ball and lost it out of bounds, allowed two awful offensive rebounds and basically seems tired. I don't know why. Long way to go here, though. ASU is probably sloppier, but they're hitting some shots.
