#20 Auburn Tigers (25-6)


Doughty makes 8 3s as No. 17 Auburn beats Tennessee 85-63

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Auburn Tigers played their best game of the season on Saturday, reminding coach Bruce Pearl of how they played a year ago in turning in the best postseason in program history.

Samir Doughty made 8 of 13 3-pointers and finished with 32 points as No. 17 Auburn beat Tennessee 85-63, snapping a two-game skid in the regular-season finale.

"That's about as good as we can play," Pearl said. "Gosh offensively, felt like we controlled the game ... Got open looks, and the kids knocked them down. Samir Doughty showed why he should be a first-team all-conference player, and just a lot of the pieces kind of came together."
