In our great state, it doesn't matter what the sport is. When you play against the team from Tuscaloosa, it's serious! Last night in the Auburn Arena the Auburn Men's basketball team defeated Alabama 83-77.
In what Coach Bruce Pearl described as his best performance, Cinmeon Bowers played like a man on a mission.
From the AUfficial Auburn website: "Having him out there at power forward is a good matchup for him because
he can do things on the perimeter. He can guard on the perimeter and
he's very powerful inside. He's at a good place right now."

This writer would like to give a special shout out to Kareem (Ka3reem) Canty for playing on what was undoubtedly a very sore ankle. Canty twisted his ankle severely in Auburn's win against Kentucky last Saturday.
For the record, I really like saying that Auburn defeated Kentucky and Alabama in the same week. WAR EAGLE!
One of the sweetest moments in any sport happens when the underdog takes down the formidable favorite. When it happens at home, the taste of victory is so much more sweet. On a Saturday night in Auburn, Alabama the sweet taste of victory came calling. Auburn's Men's basketball team answered the call by defeating the Kentucky Wildcats 75-70, and the celebrations began. Trailing by just 5 at the half, the Auburn Arena crowd was buzzing. Then Kentucky started strong in the second half and led 47-35 at one point. The Tigers climbed back into the game and with 10:37 to go and from that moment on, it was a battle that only those who wanted it most would win.
