The Tigers are coming off of a tough year, finishing just 15-16 and at the bottom of the Southeastern Conference. They were led by senior Kenny Gabriel who graduated after the seasons end. Although they lose Gabriel and Adrian Forbes, they return their backcourt in Josh Wallace and Frankie Sullivan, as well as their center Rob Chubb. In addition, the Tigers rake in two players off of the Rivals Top 150 Board. Forwards Jordan Price and Shaquille Johnson will hope to fill the shoes of Gabriel and Forbes.
The Tigers pride themselves in having a member of the 1992 Olympic Dream Team come through their program. Charles Barkley played for the tigers from 1982-1984. In the 1984 season he was the best player in the nation, and won the National Player of the Year to prove it. He went on to be a great player in the NBA and be inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame. Barkley is now a NBA analyst. The Tigers will be coached this season by second year head Coach Tony Barbee. Barbee looks to do better than last season as the Auburn faithful are counting on him.
