LSU Tigers have surprised the NCAA as they now are the leaders in the Southeastern Conference and the Auburn Tigers are in second place.

Meanwhile, Watford is also a solid contributor with 14 points and 7.4 rebounds.

The Auburn Tigers are heading to this game on a 20-2 record and hope to someday sit on top of the Southeastern Conference and dethrone the LSU Tigers after the end of the NCAA regular season. Okoro is the NBB Prospect that is expected to go midway of the first round of the 2020 NBA draft. Doughty is also a considerable talent as he contributes 15.5 points to lead the team in scoring. McCormick is the team’s third-best option behind Doughty and Okoro. But this Auburn team has a good bench to help their star players space out the floor and that has been their strength coming to this game.
Players to watch: S. Doughty G (22 GP 32.4 MIN 15.5 PTS 3.9 REB 2.6 AST 1.2 STL 0.2 BLK 2.5 TO 40.6 FG% 77.3 FT% 30.3 3P%), TaI.
