The Tigers (13-6, 2-4) welcome the struggling Georgia Bulldogs (10-9, 1-5) to Neville Arena Monday night for a clash between two teams looking to get rolling in SEC play. Georgia sits at the bottom of the SEC with only one SEC win in their 2024 campaign. Auburn sits in 10th with only two wins thus far in SEC play both of which coming at home.
Auburn is 12-28 all-time and 2-8 in the last 10 against the Bulldogs and on a two-game losing streak against Georgia as the Bulldogs come to town the Tigers will look to flip the script on them and grab a win to gain some momentum in conference play.
Auburn will turn to their stars to get the job done on Monday, Honesty Scott Grayson leads the Tigers with an impressive 15.9 points a game so the Tigers will look to her on the offensive end to get a spark as the two teams are at the bottom of the SEC in scoring offense.
It will be Taylen Collins who Auburn is looking for second chances and prohibit the Georgia offense from getting anything second chance-wise off the glass as she leads the team with 6.4 rebounds per game.
Marshaun Bostic who has 30 steals on the year will be the defensive anchor of the backcourt looking to limit the Bulldogs and stifle their offense before they can get rolling.
The Bulldog's gloomy season has its highlights as Javyn Nicholson, the Bulldog's leading scorer is averaging nearly a double-double with 15.6 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game both lead the team and will prove a tall task for the Auburn defense and their interior style of play as she locks down the paint with her nine blocks and 19 steals on the season.
The Bulldogs will be in town at Neville Arena Monday, January 29th for a 6 pm central time tip-off and the game will be on the SEC Network in conjunction with the Auburn Sports Network.
