Can you imagine how dangerous this team will be when we can start games hot? We have been phenomenal the second half of our last 4, just want to see us put together a full game and there are few teams that can beat us.

Auburn "Plainsmen", "Tigers", "War Eagles" have a live Eagle mascot named "Tiger" and a fake Tiger named "Aubie". Whoever they are we beat 'em.

Being able to shoot really well at the free-throw line is always the mark of, in the words of Les, quality teams.

4:56? Surely that can't be a clock, with the game ending around 3.

Bigby is a monster in the paint but this team as a whole sure can rebound. The free throw shooting surely helps as well. Big win to set up a big match up against big blue. Let's Geaux.
