The No. 13 Auburn Tigers (14-2, 3-0 SEC) return to action on Wednesday night against the Vanderbilt Commodores (5-11, 0-3 SEC) at Memorial Gymnasium in Nashville.

Auburn comes into this game riding a nine-game winning streak, picking up each victory convincingly. Vanderbilt has gotten off to a rough start in conference play but has played Alabama, LSU and Ole Miss tough.

What are the biggest things to watch for during the game?

Can Auburn stop Ezra Manjon?

Vanderbilt has a highly skilled guard in senior Ezra Manjon.

The native of Antioch, Calif., is in his second season with the Commodores and is making an impact. Manjon leads Vanderbilt in scoring with 16.3 points per game and in assists with 3.4 per game.

A lot of what Vanderbilt likes to do offensively runs through Manjon, so stopping him will be an area of focus for Auburn.

Will Auburn be productive from 3-point range?

Auburn has produced a variety of results from deep range this season.

The Tigers have had games in which they have shot nearly 50% from beyond the arc, and they have had games in which they have shot 11%.

If Auburn's 3-point baskets are falling, there is a good chance that its winning streak will extend to 10.

Where could Auburn possibly slip up?

On paper, Auburn is undoubtedly the better team in this matchup. However, the game will not be played on paper, and Auburn could end up losing. What could cause that to happen?

Auburn almost slipped up against Texas A&M and LSU by having sloppy periods during the second half. The Tigers recovered both times and won by double figures, but it should still be a focus for the Tigers.

Starting slow in either half or allowing Vanderbilt to go on an extensive run could cause trouble for Auburn.

Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. CT. The television broadcast can be found on the SEC Network, and the Auburn Sports Network broadcast can be streamed anywhere on the Auburn Athletics App.
