Big athletic teams are in trouble
Texas A&M is a bad matchup for this Auburn team. Memphis fit in with the Tigers as well. Auburn can struggle to find rhythm on offense and can struggle to find consistent momentum when the opposing team is large, especially at the guard position. I struggled, but found a new intensity gear by the postseason. The Aggies are one of the best defensive teams in the country. The results could have been different, but his A&M stopped the momentum tonight.
Auburn succeeds in zone defense
A large part of Auburn’s five-game winning streak is the use of zone defense. It looked like it inspired the win against Arkansas and could be a great way to stop momentum, disrupt an offense and neutralize a larger team. . A&M are a bigger team and usually don’t shoot well, so it seemed like a good fit, but they played man defense instead.
SEC officials are really bad

Pick one from tonight and Zep Jasper was battling below the waist for a rebound but somehow got called for a shooting foul. Let’s hope the conference makes changes and devotes more resources to decent positions.
