Tigers end Non-Con schedule with 74-46 win over Ospreys


After a 54-point victory just two days before the Auburn Tigers (10-3) were looking to end their non-con schedule with a momentum boosting win over the University of North Florida Ospreys (3-6). The Tigers defenses got their win, grabbing their seventh in a row winning 74-46. 

“I thought it was a good win, a good team win,” said Auburn head coach Johnie Harris, “I think we got a lot out of our defense.”  

Despite Auburn head coach Johnie Harris having on a Santa hat during the game, the Tigers were not in a giving mood. The Tigers ended the game with a total of 14 steals and scoring 25 points off 25 Osprey turnovers.

In the first half it seemed to be the Romi Levy show who ended the first half with 12 points and three rebounds in just 11 minutes of play in the first half helping cement a 38-23 Auburn lead at the half.

Levy would end the matchup with 14 points tied with Sydney Shaw for second most on the team behind Honesty Scott-Grayson who ended the night with 17 points. Levy would end the night a perfect 100% from the field. 

“I think I just need to focus on my shoots, and keep taking my shoots in my spots,” said Levy. 

Both Shaw and Scott-Grayson would give sparks to Neville Arena with made baskets from beyond the Arc with Scott-Grayson going 2-2 from range and Shaw going 3-5.

“My teammates just trust me that the shot is going to fall,” said Scott-Grayson “I know previously I haven’t been a great three-point shooter, but I’ve been working on that.”

They were many times in the second half where it seemed the Tigers nailed the final nail in the coffin on the Ospreys, but if you really want to get technical it was a Sania Wells three with nine seconds to go that really nailed it home giving the Tigers their largest lead of the night and the 77-49 win. 

Sania Wells herself had a very good six minutes of work in this one finishing with seven points and an assist.

Overall, just good old fashioned holiday fun inside Neville Arena.

When asked about the Santa cap Coach Harris said, “there was a kid after the game asked me for it so I happily pulled it off and gave it to him.”

The Tigers will enjoy the holiday before embarking on a trek known as the SEC half of the schedule starting at Ole Miss on December 29th at 4:00pm ct.
