It was far from pretty but No. 15 Auburn picked up its second win of the season Friday night over the USF Bulls.
Auburn trailed by nine at the half but scored 46 second-half points to win 67-59.
The Tiger’s defense was able to keep them in the game despite them shooting 25% from the floor and committing 11 turnovers in the opening half. Auburn finished the game with 11 steals and seven blocks.
With such a wild game the Auburn faithful had quite a night cheering on their Tigers, here are the top social media reactions.
18 pts 6-10 FG 3-6 3 PT 3-4 FT 4 REB AST 5 TO 4 Fouls
This is Flan in his purest of forms

First we toured the new football facility and now the basketball game. <3. Fun fact, when we were 10 years old we bused to Tuscaloosa for the AU vs AL women’s game. Thankful for someone who loves Auburn basketball as much as me. War Eagle, Auburn fam pic.twitter.com/UQbW00s8Iz

It’s not going to be pretty basketball most nights but Auburn’s defense is going to give them a chance on most nights. A win is a win, onto the next one.

@coachbrucepearl never schedule south Florida again

One of Bruce Pearl’s most underrated aspects is his coaching of the inbounds plays, both offense and defense. We already have 2 steals off of inbounds plays today

Am I insane for potentially wanting to start Tre Donaldson 😳

Dylan Cardwell may have learned a thing or two about post defense last year.
