Saint Louis @ No. 12 Auburn
Current Records: Saint Louis 8-1; Auburn 8-0
What to Know
After a few days' rest for both teams, the #12 Auburn Tigers and the Saint Louis Billikens will meet up at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at Legacy Arena. Both of these red-hot teams will try to put the other on ice to keep their winning streaks alive.
It was a close one, but last Thursday Auburn sidestepped the Furman Paladins for an 81-78 win. Among those leading the charge for the Tigers was C Austin Wiley, who dropped a double-double on 13 points and 12 boards.
Meanwhile, Saint Louis took their contest against the Tulane Green Wave on Sunday by a conclusive 86-62 score. Four players on Saint Louis scored in the double digits: G Gibson Jimerson (22), F Hasahn French (18), G Demarius Jacobs (18), and G Jordan Goodwin (12). That's four consecutive double-doubles for G Jordan Goodwin.
Auburn is the favorite in this one, with an expected 11.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the squad has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Their wins bumped Auburn to 8-0 and Saint Louis to 8-1. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Tigers and the Billikens clash.
