AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Auburn has shown signs of life in a season that began with more struggles.

The Tigers have won three straight games and six of eight since a 2-5 start.

They've also opened 2-0 in the Southeastern Conference for the first time since since Cliff Ellis' team that won two games in the 2003 NCAA tournament.

Center Rob Chubb says the Tigers "all of a sudden started pulling in the same direction."

It might have started with a two-point loss to No. 23 Illinois in Chicago.

Since then, Auburn has beaten Florida State, LSU and won at South Carolina -- teams with a combined 29-15 record.

The turnaround has come without injured No. 2 scorer Chris Denson and perimeter threat Jordan Price.

The Tigers visit Arkansas Wednesday night then host Kentucky.
