Tigers back in action against Bucs

Auburn returns to action Tuesday after seven days off as Charleston Southern visits Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum.

The Buccaneers are led by junior guard Jamarco Warren, who is averaging 16.6 points and 2.7 assists per game. Sophomore forward Kelvin Martin is averaging 13.6 points and a team-high 8.2 rebounds.

Warren and freshman guard Jeremy Sexton both shoot over 40 percent from beyond the arc and have combined to make 59 3-pointers.

"Charleston Southern is a very young team, a very scrappy team led by two good guards who can really shoot the basketball from the perimeter," AU head coach Jeff Lebo said. "They are a very well-coached team who has played on the road a lot already. They've played seven road games already to date like most of the small schools.
