The Auburn Tigers had two of the best scorers in college basketball, but the rest of the team was dreadful. With former Tennessee Volunteers coach Bruce Pearl now leading this team, he comes into Auburn with very little help from the old team. Here are five takeaways from Auburn’s 2013-14 college basketball season.
Shaquille Johnson and Jordan Price are recruits for Tony Barbee but were no longer members of the Tigers’ to start the season. Without recruits in the SEC, it’s hard to win games.
Say what you want about his time in Auburn, but Barbee didn’t have much to work with. Bruce Pearl was a good move, but Barbee shouldn’t be blamed for all the team’s woes.
One of the most underrated freshman acquisitions in the country last season, Shamsid-Deen led the Tigers in assists and exploded for points in a few games. He could be a big piece of Bruce Pearl’s new offense.
There hasn’t been anything this exciting happen to Auburn in a long time.
Unlike when Pearl came to Tennessee, there is a huge lack of talent on Auburn’s roster. He’ll have to start getting players now to stand a chance of competing in the SEC.
