Three Alumni To Represent Auburn In The Super Bowl

Atlanta, Georgia (EETV)- The arrival of the Super Bowl brings three former Tigers together in Sunday's big game. Rams cornerback Blake Countess, Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones, and linebacker Brandon King all spoke to the media on Monday night in Atlanta.  Blake Countess who played at Auburn in 2015 spoke on his memories of Auburn saying, " Being back in Atlanta reminds me of my recruiting trip to Auburn, because I didn't know that you had to fly into Atlanta to get there. I remember driving down with my mom and Coach Muschamp. And then for guys like Jonathan Jones, who was a senior at the time, really welcomed me in and that was special." Brandon King, who graduated in 2014, said " Being in this game in this game is different, the players around me are different, everything we have to go through is different, but just enjoying being back closer to Auburn."  Jonathan Jones, a four year starter from 2011-2015, talked about how much Auburn meant to him. Jones said, "Auburn was great just being there and experiencing it was great for me just to get to the NFL. I loved it, War Eagle." The Super Bowl will take place on Sunday as the Countess and the Rams look to win their first Super Bowl since the Rams moved to Los Angelos. King and Jones will be looking for their second Super Bowl. For full interviews with the Auburn alumni and other team players click here.

Auburn Basketball falls to Kentucky

Auburn, Ala (EETV)- Coach Bruce Pearl and the Auburn Tigers basketball team welcomed in a tough SEC opponent to Auburn Arena Saturday night when the No.12 Kentucky Wildcats came looking for their fourth win in conference play and fourteenth overall while No. 14 Auburn was looking to carry momentum from their last game over after defeating the Georgia Bulldogs 93-78.  Students waited in the rain for hours to get a look at this matchup which lived up to the expectations. The Tigers came out firing and managed to keep the game close until the end of the first half when Kentucky closed on an 8-0 run thanks to two scores from Keldon Johnson and a three pointer by Tyler Herro to put themselves up by eight at the break. Bryce Brown had a quiet first half only scoring three points going 1-2 from the field. But in the second half a different player seemed to emerge.  Brown had twenty five points in the second half while his backcourt partner Jared Harper finished with 17 points for the game.  The Tigers were shaky early in the second half as Kentucky rode the hot hands of Johnson and Herro but Brown would not let them be comfortable at any time. At one point scoring or assisting on thirteen straight points for Auburn.  Down two with just over thirty seconds left, Harper pulled up for three and found the bottom of the basket to put Auburn up by one. The next play Harper fouled Herro and sent him to the line with a chance to tie and take the lead which he was able to do. Primed in position to hit another big shot, Harper had the ball right where he wanted it with the game on the line, in his hands. Harper drove and put up a layup that would have given Auburn the lead but it just rolled out.  When asked about the shot Harper said, “I knew when I was able to get by him that I had the angle, I feel like when I shot it I put it in the right place on the backboard. It just didn’t go in.” After a made free throw and a missed last second heave from Samir Doughty at half court. The final buzzer sounded and the Tigers would fall by a final 82-80.  Brown would finish with 28 points going 8-9 from the field, 6-7 from three point range and 6-6 from the free throw line.  Pearl said of Brown "“Bryce Brown was phenomenal in every timeout, he was the one in the timeouts who was keeping the guys positive, focused.” The loss drops the Tigers t0 13-4 overall and 2-2 in SEC play. The next game will be at South Carolina on Tuesday with tip-off slated for 5:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network.
