The Auburn Tigers (10-2) picked up their fifth win in a row tonight with a dominant 101-66 victory over the Tennessee-Chattanooga Moccasins at home inside Neville Arena in their second-to-last non-conference game of the season.
Auburn did not appear to be rusty following the holiday break. The Tigers started fast and never took their foot off the gas pedal.
What are the biggest takeaways from the game?
Auburn had a decent night from 3-point range
Auburn has produced a mixed bag of results from the 3-point line so far this season, but tonight was one of its better performances.
The Tigers shot 11-25 or 44% from beyond the arc, and four members of the team hit multiple shots from deep range.
Chad Baker-Mazara shot 3-5 from 3-point range, K.D. Johnson and Jaylin Williams both shot 2-2, and Aden Holloway shot 2-8.
Chaney Johnson and Denver Jones also made a 3-point basket, shooting 1-1 and 1-4 respectively.
Auburn had one of its best starts of the season
Auburn went on a 12-0 run out of the gate and never looked back.
The Tigers led by as many as 39 points and never gave Tennessee-Chatanooga chances to go on extensive runs.
If Auburn can maintain that level of play throughout the season, conference play will go well for it.
Johni Broome and Jaylin Williams led Auburn in scoring like normal
Auburn has been led in scoring by multiple players this season, but Johni Broome and Jaylin Williams always appear to be toward the top, and tonight was no exception.
Williams led the Tigers in scoring with 21 points, and Broome followed closely with 18.
The veteran presence provided by both players cannot be ignored.
Auburn took better care of the ball
Auburn turned the ball over nine times which led to only two points for Tennessee-Chatanooga.
This is an improvement from the sloppy play that plagued Auburn against Alabama State last week.
If taking care of the ball remains a priority for Auburn, this team will be capable of winning a lot of games.
Auburn will be back in action on Tuesday when it hosts Penn at home inside Neville Arena. Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. CT, and the broadcast can be found on SEC Network.
