Rebounding with Auburn Basketball

It's the middle of football season at Auburn University, and for most of the 100+ years of its existence, that would suffice for our coverage of Auburn sports. Not Anymore.

Since the arrival of Bruce Pearl on the Plains, there has been a continual buzz about the basketball program. The reality of it is, Auburn is now a basketball school. So, let's try to get caught up on a few things going on inside Auburn Arena.

After the scrimmage that Coach Pearl just discussed, Junior Guard Tahj Shamsid-Deen was allowed to talk to the media. Among the many items up for discussion were his recovery from shoulder injuries last season. Let's give him a listen.

While prepping this post, we did not want to leave out a very important bit of news that was released October 2nd. Sophomore center Trayvon Reed is still considered a part of this basketball team. In an article by writer Wesley Sinor, Coach Pearl stated "Tray's doing fine," Pearl said Friday after Auburn's first practice of the 2015-16 season. "We're staying in touch with him. There will be some determination on if and when he'll be back. He's still in our program and we hope to get him back."

In the schedule department, some really good teams are coming to the Auburn Arena like Colorado and Mercer before the Tigers head out to the Honolulu Classic. When the team returns from Hawaii, they will start the SEC part of the schedule.
