Auburn vs Tulsa Game Open Thread

New, 99 comments

The Tigers prepare to take on their fourth straight team who appeared in the NCAA tourney last season. It should be a fun time.

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports
If you're still unsure of the details on the game, our preview for the game is here.
Below is the AP Top 25 for basketball. Auburn is not in it. Auburn isn't in the "others receiving votes" category. Auburn may not be in the Top 25 this season. However, I have a feeling we'll be seeing our Tigers in there much sooner than many could anticipate. It's time for Auburn basketball. War Eagle.
