Final from Auburn Arena!
Auburn comes back from 14 down and escapes with a thrilling 81-78 overtime victory over the Furman Paladins!
The #14th ranked Tigers improve to 8-0 on the season!
Austin Wiley came up clutch today, finishing with 13 points and 12 rebounds, recording yet another double double.
Isaac Okoro finished with 18 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists.
My take on the game:
That first half got away from us. Furman settled into the game quickly, and did something that no other opponent has done to us; shoot lights out in the first half. I think it’s very healthy for this team to face a little adversity, and learn how to take it in stride and fight back like they did tonight. Auburn worked very hard on the glass and it showed. The Tigers grabbed 39 rebounds (compared to Furmans 24), 11 of those coming on the offensive end of the floor. Overall I’m glad Auburn came back but our lack of chemistry is showing again. Hopefully we will really start to piece it together in this ending stretch of non-conference play!
Auburn takes on St. Louis (7-1) this Saturday at 3:00 pm in the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama!
