It’s a statement victory for the Auburn Tigers to bounce back in a big way Saturday night, beating Arkansas by 13 at Neville Arena. Auburn rushed forward and refused to give in. Bruce Pearl His coach coached Eric Musselman in many ways, but his use of the zone early on in his defense made the Razorbacks look really confused. Some Tigers had a great game tonight, but it really was a win for the whole team. Here are some highlights from tonight’s game.
Auburn Tigers are a very good team at home
Auburn are best when playing emotionally, which happens more often at home. Auburn has won 74-4 at home in the last five years, and has won 27 in a row. Auburn hasn’t lost a home game in over a year. What can I say about this Auburn team, they can really play at home. I guess.
Wendell Green Jr. was amazing tonight
Green played heartily, scoring 12 points in the first half tonight, hitting the first two 3s early. Green had a bad month, but he has what it takes to be great and tonight was it. He dominated this game. His poor play in recent days may be a major factor in the team’s poor play in recent weeks. may stay there.
Johnny Bloom may be Auburn’s best player
Sometimes it looks like Bloom is playing great and doing what he should be doing. Bloom has been consistent in attack lately. He’s also starting to look like the leader on defense.Bloom was six blocks tonight. His growing confidence and ownership of the team is certainly a good thing. Auburn also seems to be running more attacks through him. Auburn is having a hard time when Bloom is off the floor.
Auburn continues to be great on defense
It’s really beautiful to see Auburn playing defense. The Tigers won the game on defense. Steals and blocks led to momentum and attack. Arkansas was punched in the mouth multiple times tonight and didn’t know how to react. Combined with stifling defense and power playing at home, poor Arkansas State really didn’t stand a chance.
Finally, here are some Twitter reactions and highlights from tonight’s game.
