Auburn High didn’t get off to the start they were hoping for in 2018, losing to Benjamin Russell 49-48 on Tuesday night. The loss dropped the record to 8-10, but they can gain some momentum back if they are able to knock off their rival Opelika (4-11) on the road on Friday night. Christian Brandt comes into the matchup as the team leader in points per game with 18.2 and looking to earn a road win over Auburn’s rival in his senior year.
Scott Bagwell and Noah Gardner will have the coverage on ESPN 106.7 beginning with the girls’ game at 6:00 followed by the boys’ game. Both games will be streaming online at espnau.com and on the ESPN 106.7 app.
