The No. 1 Auburn Tigers are the talk of college basketball and will look to keep things rolling this afternoon when heading to Athens, GA, to face the Georgia Bulldogs.
Auburn (21-1, 9-0 SEC) extended its winning streak to 18 on Tuesday when blowing out archrival Alabama in a 100-81 home victory. Briefly behind early in the first half, the Tigers quickly took control of the contest against the Crimson Tide and never looked back. They notably took advantage of their numerous opportunities at the free-throw line, making 31-of-39 from the charity stripe. Wendell Green led with 23 points, eight rebounds, and six assists while Walker Kessler had 14 points, 12 rebounds, and eight blocks.
Georgia (6-16, 1-8 SEC) is continuing to spiral in conference play and was last dominated by Arkansas 99-73 on Wednesday. The Razorbacks buried a total of 15 threes in the contest and the Bulldogs didn’t have any answers at home in this one. Kario Oquendo led UGA with 17 points.
