It’s hard to say why tonight happened the way it did.
Auburn got outrebounded, outshot, out-hustled, and outworked tonight at the Pavilion against Ole Miss in an 82-67 loss. What was just an annoying team last year with those guards is now a pretty good team with Kermit Davis leading the charge. Tonight was a showing for the rest of the SEC that the Rebels will be a tough out, and that maybe Auburn isn’t quite as good as we all thought. The time off since December 29th clearly didn’t do the Tigers any favors, as they seemed sluggish and unsure of where to go tonight.
