Auburn, Alabama Not Focusing on Potential Last Place Finish

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn and Alabama basketball teams are left duking it out for last place in the SEC West.

The two rivals enter their final regular-season games tied for last place in the division. Both are 4-and-11 in SEC games.

Alabama closes against Number 16 Vanderbilt on Saturday while the Tigers visit Arkansas.

Auburn coach Jeff Lebo and Alabama player Demetrius Jemison said their respective teams aren't focusing on the standings. Both say they just want a win.

The Tigers have dropped three straight games and nine of 11.

The Tide finishes the regular season with 12 consecutive SEC road losses and has lost four of its last five games.
