Where: Legacy Arena at BJCC, Birmingham, AL
When: Saturday, December 14, 4:00 PM. ET.
The Auburn Tigers will be trying to stay undefeated when they take on the Saint Louis Billikens on Saturday afternoon.
Billikens Going For Sixth Consecutive WinThe Billikens have played well this season, winning eight of their first nine games. They have won their last five games and will try to make it six wins in a row when they play the Tigers for the first time on Saturday.
Saint Louis is averaging 73.8 points per game, shooting 45 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. The team scored 86 points in their last game and will need another big offensive performance to beat the Tigers.
Gibson Jimerson led the way for the Billikens with 22 points and two rebounds. Hasahn French finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists, while Demarius Jacobs added 18 points and four rebounds for the Billikens.
Saint Louis has played much better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 62.9 points per game. They held Tulane to 62 points in their last game and haven’t given up more than 70 points in a game this season. If they can hold the Tigers under 70 points in this game, they should be able to get the win.
Tigers Going For Ninth Consecutive WinThe Tigers are one of the few undefeated teams remaining in college basketball this season and will put their undefeated record on the line as they try to pick up their ninth consecutive win of the season against the Billikens.
