Tennessee has a chance to snap a streak today, a streak that has seen them drop the last five meetings against the Auburn Tigers. Bruce Pearl’s teams have crushed Tennessee lately, always seemingly white hot from three. It’s a simple contrast in style, and the volume-shooting Tigers have gotten the best of the Vols lately.
However, Auburn is just 11-13 on the year and they’ve been limping down the stretch. The Tigers have lost six of their last seven, and things won’t get any easier for them today. Auburn’s stud point guard Sharife Cooper (20 points per game) is listed as doubtful with an ankle injury.
Tennessee escaped a banged up Vanderbilt on Wednesday in an ugly win. They’re still looking for that elusive consistency, and they have a chance to find some against an undermanned Auburn group today.
