The previously #11 Tigers moved up to #8 after a weekend win over the Commodores of Vanderbilt in the Auburn Arena. In scoring a 93-81 victory, the Tigers hit a season high 17 3-pointers and used their suffocating defense to take multiple 20 point leads throughout the night. This was also the first win in 13 attempts against Vanderbilt dating back to 2007.
The Tigers are currently leading the SEC with 21-2 (9-1 SEC) record and projected as a #2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. There's still a long road though. #8 Auburn faces off against a pre-season top 5 team in Texas A&M tonight (Wednesday, February 7th) at the Auburn Arena. Texas A&M's size and height will be an interesting test for the Tigers to figure out. Tip off is 8pm on ESPN 2!
