Auburn Hoopsters Prep for Season

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn basketball coach Jeff Lebo is
tempering his expectations for the upcoming season.

With a number of new players, Lebo said he is taking a wait and
see approach. He does say the team has meshed well. Every player
also ran the coaches' required 6-minute mile for the first time.

Forward Korvotney Barber is fully recovered from a broken hand
that cost him most of last season. Among the newcomers are
high-scoring freshman Frankie Sullivan and junior college transfers
Tay Waller and Brendan Knox.

The Tigers open practice on Friday. They must replace starters
Frank Tolbert and Quan Prowell.
