Auburn putting the "L" in U"W"

Wow, oh what a night! Auburn Men's basketball faces its first top 25 test of the season being ranked higher than their opponent and boy did they deliver like the "Mailman!" The Tigers "Glided" to an 88-66 win over University of Washington which was ranked 25th in the nation coming into this game.

The Tigers jumped out to an early lead Like "The Magicians" they are. Like "The Baby Faced Assassin" The Real Vinoo does not disappoint! With another strong night commanding the floor doing what he does hitting 50% from beyond the arc and perfect from the charity stripe.

With the third most minutes played one Tiger went into Double/Double land with the second game picking up where he left off with his great performance in the first game against South Alabama. With the AP headline reading "Okeke Leads No.11 Auburn past #25 Washington..." All I can say is Chuma is looking smooth like a "Dr." What a great game and I am sure everyone is excited to see what is in store for game 3, 4, 5, and on! Chuma filled every column of the stat sheet with Offensive rebounds, Defensive Rebounds, Blocks, Assists, and Steals! The Auburn high scorer for the night showed that Big Cats can tame Huskies not only football but basketball too.

Okeke with spectators on an amazing statement dunk!

McLemore, Bryce and Doughty did what they do and provided the stability and contribution to allow the Tigers to coast to victory draining the bench with a little over 2 minutes left in the game.

So happy, so many Tigers got onto the court as this campaign continues. We must have a "Next Man Up Mentality." We are deeeeeeeep on talent and when the opportunity presents itself, I expect everyone of our Auburn Tigers to step on that court and do the job as good if not better. This team has amazing chemistry, camaraderie and belief in themselves to finish some business they started last year!

War Eagle y'all this is only the beginning. Shout out to the @AUJungle too for making our 9,121 person arena feel like opposing teams are playing to a packed house in the United Center in Chi-town! What a comment from the UW coach post game about our Auburn Arena atmosphere!

Thank you Justin Lee (@ByJustinLee) for the post.

As Greg Duckworth (@Duck4Auburn) put it best this morning... 

Do not get over your skis y'all a lot of ball to be played and we all know how people love to tear down winners.... stay humble and take every step of this journey to March with confidence and a knowing you have to earn it, and every one wants to knock you down. Don't let it happen! We are already balling in mid-season form in November.

Basketball School too.....

Thank you for taking the time to read and as always love feedback and the debate. 

The un-Official Auburn University everything sunshine pumper!

War Eagle!
