Auburn 70, South Alabama 69 trip report. Was announced as 10K, USA's biggest crowd ever, but wasn't quite full. Ton of Auburn fans there of course but USA got impressively loud -- felt like a real road game. For now Auburn has plenty of raw defensive talent to get by with but is still finding an offensive identity -- guard play had to take a step back from Jared Harper and Bryce Brown but I didn't think it would be this visible with as much playing time as J'Von McCormick and Samir Doughty had coming in. Isaac Okoro won the game with a falling-down four-foot and-one with two seconds left; you'll know his name pretty soon if you don't already, looks like a one and done. Babatunde "Stretch" Akingbola, 6'8" from Nigeria with one year of American HS ball, got his first playing time when Austin Wiley and Anfernee McLemore got into foul trouble early in the second half and scored a monster block like four seconds into his career. I was near the top of the arena and gasped at the dude's wingspan. 10/10 would watch again.

Akingbola has more than one year of American high school ball. I covered a high school game of his three seasons ago. Okoro, too, as they were on the same team.
I could have the number wrong but he did wind up back in Nigeria after you saw him and couldn't come back to finish HS in America because of some problem with his visa IIRC.

Also seen him variously at 6'10" or 6'8". Curious about his wingspan, dude looks like a raptor.

I watched all the clips that came across my TL but at phone size and never caught, what actually instigates the fight? It's a rivalry and I assume it was chippy all night but what's the inciting incident?

Auburn just won a ludicrously stupid game at Ole Miss in double OT by 1, coming back from a deficit as large as 19 in the second half. It had dumb unforced throwaways at critical moments, weird ref decisions, all the good players fouling out, a few actual well-executed plays, everything you want from a really stupid basketball game. Does nothing to dispel any of the troubling signs about Auburn playing even halfway competent opponents on the road but whatever it was fun.

No disagreement the refs got goofy but idk how it added up. Seemed like the whistles were super quick off the ball but you could take an axe to the shooter.

Completely agree, with evidence being that the only 2 players to foul out were Kentucky guards.
Yeah that was a bad break with the depth situation y'all have at the moment. Expect you to even the series though, immediately after the game I got a text saying "we are gonna get destroyed at Rupp".

Is LSU actually good or is the SEC still wide open?

Oh yeah also Isaac Okoro went down grabbing a hamstring on a loose ball chase with some minor if any contact and did not return which looked... inconclusive? can't tell if it was a big deal or not until we know more.

OK here's Bruce: "He didn't rip it but he could be out a little bit. We'll see how he is tomorrow."

Not great but not a disaster probably.

Hmm it appears Auburn may be not actually all that good without their one-and-done lottery pick but also goddamn they went 1-17 from behind the line so whatever except that's exactly the way they've lost all their losses but wait they've only lost three games so in one sense it's no big deal but in another sense they're only barely hanging on to their status as a protected seed by winning 5/5 games in OT so I guess they are "clutch" if that means anything but maybe it doesn't in conclusion

Auburn made another bizarre 17-point comeback against Tennessee, their first win since Isaac Okoro fell to a hamstring injury. (He's resumed practicing, but no timetable is set given they're just playing for seeding and are probably a borderline 4 at best.) Very encouraging given how garbage they've looked in those

Unfortunately someone identified as a student was heard to remark something like "Go back to Uruguay" at a Tennessee player (who is from there so it was not like just a weird non-sequitur), but they were ejected and have been banned from Auburn Arena and will face further discipline from the school so they're pretty hosed.

quote:

This time Pearl had a fiery halftime message to his players, though Doughty declined to share the particulars.

"I can't share anything he said," the guard said. "He got on us, and we reacted but I can't really share what he said. But it got us motivated.

"He kicked everybody out of the locker room but the players. When it gets like that, we know how serious he is."

Isaac Okoro returned for Auburn, looked fine in a win over Ole Miss who is not good but until this year gained superpowers when playing us (mashall henderson dot gif). Next up: getting destroyed at Rupp as Kentucky clinches the regular season title.
