Auburn has moved down two spots in the poll.
The Tigers move to No. 19 after a loss to Alabama and a second-half surge against Georgia. Auburn remains the SEC's highest-ranked team, one spot ahead of Florida.
ESPN's Joe Lunardi released his latest tournament projections earlier Monday morning, with Auburn still controlling both the No. 4 seed and the SEC's highest ranking. Florida is the next highest with a No. 5 seed.
Despite its edge over Florida in both the polls and Lunardi's bracket, Auburn is one-half game behind the Gators in the SEC standings.The pair will meet for the first time this season on Feb. 24 in Gainesville.
In its recent win over Georgia, Auburn outscored the Bulldogs 53-25 in the second half for a 79-65 victory. Bryce Brown led all scorers with 28, including 25 in the second half, on 9-of-15 shooting.
The Tigers will play Missouri in Columbia on Wednesday before hosting LSU on Saturday.
In the pair's first meeting since the 2017 SEC Tournament, Auburn will look to revenge it's buzzer-beating opening-round loss to Missouri.
