Auburn Basketball Falls To Vanderbilt 67-59


The Auburn Tigers, sitting with a 12-12 record overall (4-9 in SEC), will be taking on the Vanderbilt Commodores (6-7 in SEC) today in Auburn Arena. Vanderbilt and Auburn come in at the 10th and 11th places in the SEC conference, respectively, for today's matchup. After suffering a tough, nail-biter loss against #2 Florida last Wednesday, the Tigers look to rebound against a Commodore team consisting of just seven-scholarship players. With five games left in the regular season, it's time to finish strong.
