The No. 13 Auburn Tigers took on the Missouri Tigers on the road on Tuesday night and came away with a 101-74 win.

The first half was close, and Missouri was able to hang around to start the second half, but Auburn pulled away and picked up the win in convincing fashion.

What are the biggest takeaways from the game?

Sean East II made Auburn work defensively

Sean East II, one of Missouri's top guards, led the home Tigers in scoring with 21 points. He shot 4-17 from the field and 12-13 from the free-throw line.

East is dominant, and he showed just how good he can be in this game.

Auburn dominated the boards

Auburn out-rebounded Missouri 41-28 total, 14-10 on the offensive side and 27-18 on the defensive side.

This advantage allowed Auburn to record 22 second-chance points to Missouri's seven.

Auburn has struggled to rebound at times this season but appears to have gotten things under control in that area.

Auburn did not shoot great from 3-point range

Auburn struggled from beyond the arc tonight but made up for it down low and at the free-throw line.

Auburn finished the game with 48 points in the paint and shot 25-29 at the free-throw line.

Chad Baker-Mazara did have a decent performance from 3-point range shooting 3-5, but Tre Donaldson was the only other Auburn player to hit multiple 3-point baskets.

Auburn has improved from 3-point range lately, but those shots were not falling as much on Tuesday.

Auburn had many players step up on offense

Auburn had six players score in double-figures.

Jaylin Williams led the way with 17 points, Baker-Mazara had 15, Johni Broome had 15, Dylan Cardwell had 12, Chaney Johnson had 10 and Denver Jones had 10.

Having four players contribute on that level on the offensive end will almost always lead to good results.

Auburn is now 23-7 on the season and 12-5 in conference play.

The Tigers return to action on Saturday when they host the Georgia Bulldogs at 5:30 p.m. CT. The television broadcast can be found on SEC Network, and the Auburn Sports Network broadcast can be streamed anywhere on the Auburn Athletics app.
