Auburn wiped out a 13-point deficit but could not get over the hump and Texas A&M ended the Tigers' season Wednesday night with a 71-62 victory in the first round of the SEC Tournament. Auburn finished 9-23, losing its last 10 games and 16 of its last 17. Frankie Sullivan scored 19 points in his final college game. Junior Chris Denson scored 15.
Story to come.
A&M goes on a 7-2 run to go up 54-49 with 6:17 left. Critical time for Auburn.
Chris Denson converts a three-point play and Auburn, once down by 13, has caught up with Texas A&M. The game is tied at 47.
Auburn comes back again, cuts the A&M lead to a single point but the Aggies push it back to 45-42 with 12:33 left. Auburn's Shaq Johnson is injured but appears to be OK.
Auburn cuts Texas A&M's seven-point lead to two points at 36-34, but Texas A&M quickly goes back up 41-34 with 16:40 left in their SEC Tournament game in Nashville.

Zero offensive rebounds in the first half. Kinda hard to get any when 4 out of 5 players start heading down the court to play defense when a three point shot goes up.
ON TO VICTORY - STRIKE UP THE BAND
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
Watched the entire game - a few missed opportunities. However, that team played its heart out tonight. Frankie was good, so was Denson. We really, and I mean REALLY need a solid point guard (not a 5'11" kid that works his butt off but just doesn't have it), and a big man that is a true threat.
Well... there is always next year.
We never play slow!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!!
