Auburn Women's Basketball Dominates In 77-49 Win At Alabama A&M

NORMAL, Ala. – Auburn dominated both ends of the court en route to a 77-49 win at Alabama A&M on Tuesday. Auburn improves to 3-1 on the season with the win while Alabama A&M falls to 0-3.

 

"It was good to get the win, but we had our mistakes that we can't make," said Auburn head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. "We had way too many turnovers and were not as productive in the post as we should have been. We were erratic at times, out of control and forcing things, and we can't do that."

 

Auburn was led by seniors Tyrese Tanner and Peyton Davis with each notching a double-double. Tanner had 19 points and 10 rebounds in the win while Davis tallied a career-high 17 points and 12 rebounds. It marked the first time for a pair of Tigers to have a double-double in the same game since DeWanna Bonner and Whitney Boddie against Ole Miss in the 2009 SEC Tournament.

 

Also finishing in double figures was freshman Brandy Montgomery with 11 points along with her six rebounds. She has scored in double figures in each game she has played in.

 

The night was especially big for Tanner as she eclipsed the 1,000-point plateau in the game, becoming the 28th Tiger all-time to score 1,000 career points. With her 19 points, she finished the game with 1,009 career points.

 

The Tiger defense forced 27 Bulldog turnovers, converting them into 28 points on the other end. Auburn tallied 14 steals in the game with Allina Starr and Tanner posting three each.

 

Auburn used its size and dominated in the post, finishing the game with a 53-16 rebounding advantage. The Tigers pulled down 23 offensive rebounds for 27 second-chance points.

 

Auburn struggled to find its shot early, but a 14-0 run midway through the half gave the Tigers the separation they would need. Auburn led by as many as 23 in the opening half, taking a 43-22 lead into the break.

 

The game was never in question after that point as the Tigers would go on to lead by as many as 37 points in the second half before finishing with the 28-point margin. It was the Tigers' largest margin of victory this season while the 77 points are the most scored by Auburn. The 49 points scored by Alabama A&M marked the first time for the Tigers to hold an opponent to fewer than 50 points since Auburn held Arkansas to 47 on Jan. 3, 2013.

 

While Auburn controlled the inside, it was the outside where Alabama A&M was able to do its damage. Nine of the Bulldogs' 18 field goals came from beyond the arc. Alganese Gatson led Alabama A&M with 11 points while Alyssa Strickland scored 10.

 

Auburn will return to the court at 1 p.m. CT, Sunday as the Tigers travel to Chattanooga, Tenn., for a meeting with Tennessee-Chattanooga.
