Dakota Sumpter - Auburn Athletics

It was a nice busy week on Auburn’s campus, with success all around, and the echoing notes of John Fogerty ushering in the start of baseball and softball season, no matter how cold it might be. Let’s get right to it.

BASEBALL

Auburn had a scrimmage on the diamond, and got a little clarity in trying to solidify the pitching rotation with Tanner Burns getting some work to show his stuff.

Also, former Tiger pitcher Tim Hudson was inducted into the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame, and you can check out his visit with Andy Burcham in this hour-long podcast.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

I’m sure you’re all aware of Auburn’s 95-70 drubbing of LSU yesterday, which followed the 91-73 blowout at Missouri on Wednesday night. The Tigers are 19-2 overall, and still tops in the SEC at 7-1. Here’s the postgame audio from the Auburn Sports Network broadcast of last night’s win.

Auburn plays at Ole Miss on Tuesday night, for an 8 pm CST tipoff.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

While the women’s team has struggled lately, they certainly got the one that matters earlier today, beating Alabama 69-60 at Auburn Arena. Janiah McKay scored 18 points to lead four other double-digit scorers, and the Tigers forced the Tide into 25 turnovers during the game. Auburn now stands at 2-6 in the SEC after breaking a six-game losing streak.

GYMNASTICS

The Tigers lost to Kentucky on Friday night at Auburn Arena, 196.700-196.250, but a huge crowd was on hand to support Auburn.

Auburn will face Florida this Friday at 6 pm CST at home.

SOFTBALL

Mickey Dean’s team got the news that they’ve got a pair of preseason All-SEC players to work with, and scrimmaged on Friday night as well.

TENNIS

Auburn’s men’s team was at the Harvard Indoors this weekend up in Cambridge, and fell to the Crimson 5-2 earlier today. The women’s team had a much better weekend, beating Tulane yesterday, before taking down #17 Miami today to advance to the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in Wisconsin.

TRACK & FIELD

And finally, the track teams set 14 personal records at the Bob Pollack Meet in Clemson!

Auburn will be back in Clemson in a couple weeks for the Tiger Paw Invite, beginning February 9th.
