Tigers spend Wednesday giving back 

Wednesday was Tigers Give Back Day, when coaches and athletes from all sports at Auburn spent time giving back in the community.

Football coach Gus Malzahn spent time playing bingo at Oak Park. Bruce Pearl and his players spent time packing school lunches for kids. Auburn softball visited East Alabama Medical Center and devoted time to patients there. And those were just a few of the kind activities that the day included.

All in all, it was an exceptional day made better by an outstanding athletic department.

 Another Tigers player to test draft waters 

After a junior season to remember, Brown has decided to give the NBA draft a go. Fortunately for Tiger fans hoping for an enjoyable 2018-19 basketball season, Brown will not hire an agent and will remain eligible for his senior season.

While leading Auburn to a share of the regular-season SEC title, Brown averaged 15.9 points and 1.7 assists per game. The Stone Mountain, Ga., native also made 107 of 280 3-point attempts while helping the Tigers to their first NCAA appearance since 2003.

This comes after the Tuesday news that forward Desean Murray has finished his time at Auburn. Little Charles Barkley left fans with this heartfelt message on social media.
