Blackerby Breakdown: Auburn basketball keeps slamming it home

By | Talent Columns | No Comments

On this edition of the Blackerby Breakdown, we take a look at three slams that the Tigers made against their comeback win Georgia. We will also look at Senior Patrick Keim’s unprecedented level of swag.

Mustapha Heron drives hard

This put the exclamation mark on the comeback win against Auburn’s rival on Saturday. Heron has shown that his strength has been attacking the basket. His head coach, Bruce Pearl, is hoping to see more of this throughout the season.

Bryce Brown is a difference maker

Brown has been huge for Auburn this season. While leading the Tigers in scoring, he has also shown the ability to make an impact on the defensive side of the game. We see him single-handedly force a turnover and attack the rim for an easy score.

Anfernee McLemore kept Auburn alive

In the first half, Auburn was really bad. Luckily for Auburn, McLemore’s 10 first-half points generated some points to keep Auburn in the game at the half. The big man also knocked down two shots from long range.

A look at Keim taking his game to the next level

Coach Pearl has talked about Keim’s leadership in the locker room. The video of him being awarded a scholarship earlier this season was incredible due to the fact that his teammates were so happy for him. It says a lot. He’s been a blast to watch this season as he gets more fired up than anyone when one of his teammates make a play.

 

Blackerby Breakdown: Auburn Basketball keeps the excitement alive

By | Talent Columns | No Comments

On this edition of the Blackerby Breakdown, we look at some exciting plays from Auburn Basketball’s big win last weekend against Mississippi State.

Malik Dunbar with the slam

Any ally-oop needs a solid lob pass and Dunbar received the ball from Bryce Brown. Dunbar showed his athleticism at the junior college ranks before his time at Auburn. His first few games wearing orange and blue were slow but Tiger fans are starting to see more exciting plays like this one.

Mustapha Heron attacks the rim

While Heron has been able to capitalize on his jump shot at times this year, his strength is attacking the basket. We see this here. His ability to use his right hand to lay in the reverse layup may look like an easy finishing move but for Heron, a left-handed wing, shows another instance where his versatility makes this team better.

 

Jared Harper seals the game

Harper has gained and earned the respect of Auburn fans this season. With his poise and leadership, many see him as the glue that is holding this Auburn basketball team together. He did not have a great night from the floor against Mississippi State but he made the smart play here. He shows his patience and maturity on this play and the easy two points late in the game extended Auburn’s lead to be too much to overcome for Mississippi State.
