Lessons learned from Auburn Basketball’s win over Northwestern

Auburn started slowly into the second night of a back-to-back tonight. At half time it was 19:19. Both teams were tired and it was sloppy at both ends. The Tigers didn’t have a great offensive night and the game came down to final possession. Great teams narrowly pull out ugly games like this. The Auburn Tigers are champions of the Cancun Challenge. Here are some takeaways from today’s game.

Tournaments are exhausting

Both teams looked exhausted tonight. Of course they played games last night. They have also traveled internationally and had fun in the sun. The weather’s in the 80’s down in Cancun and Bruce has been preaching hydration. Auburn looked fresh last night and tired tonight. This was certainly a contributing factor to the sloppy play.
