Auburn bounces back with wire-to-wire victory over Arkansas

Classes have not even started, students are still enjoying their winter breaks, but when Wendell Green Jr. opened the game with a four-point play, there was a sense of something different in the air of Neville Arena. It was not a perfect game from the Tigers, but Auburn’s game plan was sound and the Jungle roared once again as the Tigers took down the No. 13 Razorbacks 72-59.

Auburn has been a true second-half team through the start of the 2022-2023 season and the same was true tonight as the Tigers overcame another stagnant first half to defeat Texas Southern 72-56. Auburn outscored the Tigers of Texas Southern 43-29 in the second half after leading by just two points at the break.

Defense wins it for Auburn in season opener against George Mason

In the much-anticipated season-opener, in what is likely the most anticipated(at least ticket-wise) season in recent memory, Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl’s No. 15 Tigers(1-0) defeated George Mason 70-52. The Patriots(0-1) put up a good fight, but Auburn’s size and tenacity on the defensive end decided the matchup.
