The Auburn Tigers (2-1) picked up a dominant 83-59 win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (1-2) to earn a spot in the championship game of the Legends Classic at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Auburn never trailed and seemed to control every area of the floor.

What are the biggest takeaways from Auburn's second win of the season?

Once again, Auburn is deep

The depth of this Auburn team simply can not be overstated.

Five Auburn players scored in double-figures and the Tigers posted 30 bench points. Nine Tigers saw more than 15 minutes of action.

This kind of depth gives Auburn the ability to do a lot of different things and will be very beneficial as the season goes along.

Has Auburn figured out how to play away from home?

One common theme for Auburn basketball over the past few years is a significant drop-off in the level of play when a game is played away from Neville Arena.

Auburn looked good in its season-opening loss to the Baylor Bears and looked even better in this game. Both were played on a neutral floor.

If Auburn has figured out how to bring the same energy and purpose with them when they travel that it is able to play with at home, good things could be in store for this team.

Auburn shot the ball exceptionally well

Auburn shot 31-58 (53.4%) from the field, 9-20 (45%) from 3-point range and 12-16 (75%) from the free-throw line.

If the shots are falling like that, Auburn will be a hard team to beat this season.

Aden Holloway is special

Auburn has a star in Aden Holloway.

The freshman guard from Charlotte, North Carolina co-led Auburn in scoring with 15 points and went 4-5 from beyond the arch.

Holloway made his first of what will likely be many starts this season during tonight's game and made an impact.

The St. Bonaventure Bonnies (2-1) beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys (1-2) to earn the other spot in the championship game. Auburn will take them on tomorrow at 6 p.m. CT and the broadcast can be found on ESPN2.
