Auburn, Ala. (WIAT) – For the 2nd straight season, the Auburn Tigers defended Auburn Arena from archival Alabama. The tigers use a big 2nd half to beat the Tide 84-64.
True Freshman Austin Wiley led the way for Auburn. The Spain Park product overcame some early jitters to score 19 points and grab 9 rebounds.
“I can’t lie, I think I was over-hyped” Said Wiley after the game “I was just like, big-eyed out there but I calmed myself down, my teammates did a good job calming me down, saying i’m good and uh, we got the w so yeah.”
The two teams will meet again on February 4th in Coleman Coliseum.
