Men's hoops: Another second-half slump sinks Auburn at Ole Miss, 85-75

Auburn's second-half woes simply won't go away. The Tigers blew a 12-point halftime lead in an eventual 85-75 loss to Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss., Wednesday night.

It's the fourth time in SEC play Auburn (13-15, 4-9) has blown a halftime lead.

Chris Warren finished with 26 points, Terrico White 21 points and Murphy Holloway 15 points and 20 rebounds for Ole Miss (18-9, 6-7), which had lost five of six entering the night.

The Rebels out-scored the Tigers 63-41 in the second half and out-rebounded them 50-25 in the game.

Tay Waller kept his hot hand going for Auburn, scoring 29 points for the second straight game. He made eight of his 11 3-point attempts to match a career high.

He didn't get much help. Everybody else on Auburn shot 27 percent (13-for-49). DeWayne Reed added 21 points but took 18 shots to do so. Nobody else reached double figures.

Auburn is back in action Saturday at home against LSU, which got its first SEC win Wednesday with an upset of Arkansas.

Andy, do you believe the decision as to whether Lebo will return next year is already made?

I think Lebo gets one more year with the new arena coming. We keep hearing about what a great recruiting tool it will be. However, we seem to get good players, so maybe it is the coaching.
