Johni Broome, Jaylin Williams lead Auburn basketball over Alabama

AUBURN — Just in case there was any doubt, Auburn basketball is firmly entrenched in the race for an SEC regular-season title.

The Tigers made a statement Wednesday evening with their 99-81 win over Alabama in Neville Arena, running the Crimson Tide out of the building after a nip-and-tuck first few minutes. It’s Auburn’s third straight victory after the Tigers briefly went on a two-game losing skid, which was triggered by a loss at Alabama on Jan. 24.

The front court paring of Johni Broome and Jaylin Williams paved the way for the Tigers (19-4, 8-2 SEC) with a combined 50 points on 51.7% shooting. Broome has had at least 15 points in six of his last eight games, and Williams has hit that marker in all three of his latest appearances.
