Redemption Night: Auburn Basketball seeks vengeance Tuesday against Texas A&M after record-setting Saturday in Fayetteville

SHARE NOW

AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn University men’s basketball team gathered their biggest victory of the season last Saturday, and they did it in dominating style.

Streaks are an Auburn basketball staple. After all, when the Tigers had their first number one ranking a couple of seasons ago, it was the Arkansas Razorbacks who stopped it on their home floor at Bud Walton Arena.

Well, Bruce Pearl and his cats certainly got revenge three days ago with a 83-51 rout of Arkansas, the largest margin of victory for a visiting team in said arena.

Before SEC play started last Saturday, Auburn defeated Penn to now have the nation’s longest non-conference winning streak at 54 home wins in a row.

Last season, the Texas A&M Aggies ended the Tiger’s other impressive streak, a 28-game home winning streak, and that puts a bad taste in the team’s mouth as they host the Aggies tonight at 8:00 p.m.

Pearl’s cats have won seven in a row now and have risen to a ranking of 16 in the latest AP poll, but the Aggies have Auburn’s number recently, winning five out of the last six times over the past four seasons.

So, forget being ranked or home court winning streaks.

Tonight, beating Texas A&M is the only things on Auburn’s mind.
