On Senior Day, Auburn dropped its final game of the regular season 56-55 to Tennessee.
“I think it gives us motivation moving forward,” Rivera said. “We just got to show up every day like that and capitalize.”
“I give a lot of credit to my teammates for getting on base,” Ward said. “I was sticking to my approach and reacting to pitches.”
"Tonight, I felt that we played really great defense all around." Unique Thompson said.
Auburn took to Moore Field Saturday for the second day of the Plainsman Invitational, taking on Alabama State and UNC-Wilmington in a double-header. The Tigers dominated defensively in both games, allowing only 2 hits.
“It changed when we realized what we were actually capable of doing. Now we know that we’re capable of coming back.”
While the Tigers had a few standout offensive performances, it was their defense that led to their 20 point loss to Florida on Thursday, 83-63 inside Auburn Arena.
