On Wednesday, Auburn’s defense once again showed up in a huge way and saved the Tigers following another night of issues on the offensive end.

AUBURN — This story may sound familiar to Auburn basketball fans. The 13th-ranked Tigers (7-0) followed a solid first-half performance by going cold on the offensive end as St. Louis (5-2) mounted a comeback with its own struggling offense.
