Mitchell, Alabama pull away from Auburn 68-58

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Tony Mitchell and JaMychal Green each scored 15 points and Alabama pulled away for a 68-58 victory over Auburn on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (12-7, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) made 15 of 17 free throws over the final 2:14 and clamped down defensively, forcing Auburn to turn it into a foul-line marathon.

The Tigers (7-12, 0-5) went 4:22 without a basket before Earnest Ross hit a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left to end a string of seven straight misses. Ross made two free throws to cut the margin to six points, but Alabama iced it at the line.

Alabama, which upset No. 12 Kentucky Tuesday night, has now won seven of its last eight games. The Tide forced 21 turnovers.

Ross led Auburn with 20 points, 13 rebounds and five assists.
