February 24, 2016 - Auburn Arena
This was Auburn’s final win of the 2015-2016 season and it kicks off our series as we march toward the opener against North Alabama on November 10th!
Coming into this contest, Auburn had lost 8 of their previous 9 games and needed something positive to happen.
It’s a special night when 1 player posts a career high in points, but on this night, 2 Auburn players had their highest scoring output in a Tigers uniform.
T.J. Lang scored a career high 21 points (3-4 from 3) and Jordon Granger had a career-high in both points (18) and rebounds (11) posting his lone career double-double in his penultimate appearance inside Auburn Arena. Granger was 4-7 from 3 and his other 6 points came from the 3-point line.
Auburn got off to a great start in this game leading the Bulldogs 39-23 at halftime.
This game also featured major contributions from a couple freshmen who will be featured prominently in this series: Horace Spencer had 9 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks. While Bryce Brown came off the bench to score 12 points and nabbed 6 rebounds.
The Tigers controlled this game throughout most of it before having to hold off a hard charging Georgia team at the end for a 3 point win.
Here are the game highlights!
Tomorrow at #99, we will transition to the 2016-2017 season.
