The Tigers (16-14, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) led by as many as 18 points in the second half and hit 14-of-18 free throws over the final 1:39 to counter a Tide rally.
The loss will almost certainly send Alabama (19-9, 6-8) tumbling from the Associated Press rankings for the first time this season after rising as high as No. 4 in December. The Tide's second straight defeat was also another blow to the team's NCAA tournament hopes.
Auburn took a 68-50 lead with 7:46 left on Prowell's third 3-pointer of the half before Alabama finally showed some life.
Then, the Tigers completed their season sweep of Alabama with a steady stream of free throws, while most of the home fans cleared out of the arena.
Auburn had lost 21 of its last 22 games at Coleman Coliseum and hadn't won there since 1999.
