Auburn Bests Tide amid Clock Controversy

By  | 

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Lucas Hargrove hit a free throw with 3
seconds left Saturday to lift Auburn to a 58-57 win over Alabama.
Alabama heaved the ball down the court on the last play, but
turned the ball over.

The Crimson Tide led 55-51 with 2:58 left in the second half on
a 3-pointer by Anthony Brock. But Hargrove, who finished with 14
points, had a dunk and converted a three-point play to cut
Alabama's lead to 57-56 2:02 left.

DeWayne Reed's free throw with 12 seconds remaining tied the
game at 57-57 for the Tigers (11-11, 2-5 Southeastern Conference).
Reed, who scored 10 points with six turnovers, stole the ball from
Alabama's Mikhail Torrance and passed to Hargrove who was fouled
then knocked down 1-of-2 foul shots to put Auburn up for good.

Tay Waller led Auburn with a game-high 20 points on 8 of 12
shooting from the floor.
Torrance had 13 points for the Crimson Tide (13-8, 3-4).
