Oh, How I miss these days in AU basketball. This team was loaded with talent and chemistry to make them one of the best teams in college hoops history.
Even the crowd is stoked like I've never seen it.
Starting line-up for the Sweet Sixteen team from 1999:
G 10 Scott Pohlman 6'2
G 50 Doc Robinson 6'2 (My favorite player)
F 4 Chris Porter 6'7
F 13 Bryant Smith 6'5
C 34 Mamadou N'diaye 7'0
Some Bench players:
Just thought I would share and sorry if it's been posted recently. (Can't remember If I discovered this video here or elsewhere) War Eagle!
Watch for the half court alleyoop from Doc Robinson to Bryant Smith for the back-handed jam.
That was awesome during that video when the showed the rankings and Auburn was #3 right behind Duke and UConn. Man that was a special time. I can't image seeing Auburn now that high in the rankings. Very cool stuff.
Thanks for sharing. Great memories indeed!
Proud Cliff Dweller here. Those were some great days!!!
Seeing that team fall to Ohio St. (with Sconnie Penn & Michael Redd) hurt. That team really had the talent to win a national title. The next year too. Things kind of fell apart in 1999-2000. I believe we were pre-season #1 according to SI, but Porter starting having more off-the-court issues. Bryant Smith was a real glue player, and losing him hurt more than most people thought it would. Ah well. It was a great run. But, even with that, we STILL lost to Kentucky at Rupp and again in the SEC Tournament. Our other regular season loss was a blowout at Arkansas on Senior Night. And I think we finally broke through and beat Kentucky (for the first time in a decade or so) in Auburn during the 99-00 season.
Very special team.
