Despite a one-point loss to an up and coming Texas A&M squad, Auburn’s stay in the AP Top 10 will continue for at least another week.
Auburn entered this week’s poll at No. 10, dropping two spots from its No. 8 spot last week.
The Tigers were one of 15 teams in last week’s poll to lose, including six teams in the top 10. Auburn rebounded from its loss to Texas A&M, who entered this week’s poll at No. 21, with a 17-point win at Georgia on Saturday without its leading scorer Bryce Brown.
Auburn holds a two-game lead in the SEC over No. 18 Tennessee and Florida.
Auburn was projected as the top No. 2 seed by the NCAA Tournament selection committee on Sunday. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi also listed the Tigers as a No. 2 seed.
Auburn returns to action on Wednesday as it hosts Kentucky inside Auburn Arena at 8 p.m. The Wildcats have lost three-straight games for the first time under John Calipari. The action can be seen on ESPN2.
