Auburn falls to Ole Miss on Senior Night

AUBURN, ALABAMA (EETV) The Auburn women's basketball team fell to Ole Miss 72-52 Thursday night in Auburn Arena. The loss moves the Tigers to 10-16 on the season and 2-13 in league play.

Before Auburn knew what had hit them they were down 17. The Tigers came out flat and could not hit shots. On the other side of the ball they could not stop the Rebels from scoring. Ole Miss scored 19-straight points until Auburn's Jala Jordan hit a 3-pointer at the 8:56 mark in the second quarter.

“I didn’t think we were aggressive offensively,” Auburn head coach Johnnie Harris said of the Tigers’ slow start. “I thought we passed open a lot of wide-open shots, and then we took some bad shots. We got better in the second half. But then we just didn’t guard them, we gave them wide-open shots in that zone. We wanted to make them score over us, but we also wanted to contest outside, and I thought they got wide-open shots.”

Auburn shot just 32 percent from the field compared to the Rebels hitting half of their field goals. The Tigers were 6-of-17 from beyond the arc. Ole Miss dominated the boards 43-21.

Honesty Scott-Grayson led the Tigers with 13 points and six rebounds. Jordan led the bench with 11 points and made 2-of-3 from deep.

Rebels Snudda Collins had a career-night with 20 points and Shakira Austin added 19.

Auburn finishes up its regular season with a road game at Kentucky on Sunday. Tip-off is set for 3 p.m. CT with coverage by SEC Network.

"I want us to start fast," Coach J said. "We need to watch film, grow from it, and learn from it. Then we need to go to Kentucky and play for 40 minutes there."
