Network: Watch ESPN (SEC Network Alternate)/Auburn Radio Network

Get to Know Mississippi College..

I’m not even going to pretend I know a bunch about this team. The Choctaws, are a Division II school from Clinton, Mississippi. They played Nicholls last week and lost 86-58. Brandon Boston is their best player, who is averaging close to 18 points per game in the team’s first 3 games.

What to Look for from Auburn...

This game will be Auburn’s last dress rehearsal before flying out to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational. This would be a great time to get Austin Wiley more comfortable in the offense as he will be needed next week out in Maui. The Tigers will have a huge height advantage in this game so getting the ball inside should be something the Tigers are able to do very well. We saw a few flashes of what Wiley can do on Friday but he’s still obviously working the rust off. We will also see if SEC Player of the Week Chuma Okeke can accumulate another double-double tonight. Okeke averaged 19.5 points and 9.5 rebounds last week against South Alabama and Washington. This should be a great opportunity for Auburn to work on some things before taking on Xavier on Monday.

Score Prediction

Auburn should win this game with no trouble. Auburn 105 Mississippi College 60
