This Auburn basketball team is the most frustrating team I’ve ever watched at Auburn. And that’s saying something!

I've really come to love Zep, especially his defensive tenacity.
If he were more of an offensive threat it'd be game over.

Allen Flanigan does some really, really beautiful things on a basketball court sometimes.
