Episode details

Justin and Painter break down the historically rough shooting, the incredibly impressive defense and the highly controversial ending in Auburn basketball’s low-scoring close loss at a top-five Tennessee team. They look at all the aspects of what went down in Knoxville, from the offensive execution to the final no-call, before looking ahead to the Tigers’ trip to face Texas A&M on Tuesday.

The guys also talk about Auburn’s red-hot week of recruiting both in football and basketball with the commitments of Walker White, Jayden Lewis, Malik Autry, Tahaad Pettiford and Labaron Philon. They discuss how Auburn’s new football staff is trying to set the tone in a cutthroat SEC landscape and how the 2024 class is shaping up to be exactly what the basketball program needs for the future.

The episode ends with a loving tribute to Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim. (Not really. He’s the worst.)
