  • Auburn guard Malik Dunbar celebrates on the court after Auburn defeated Alabama 90-71 on Wednesday in Auburn Arena

"I just knew I had to step up with two of our teammates down", Okeke said.

The Auburn Tigers remain at the top of the SEC Basketball Conference and have a solid lead in the standings.

The win comes four days after a crushing 84-75 loss at SC where starting center Anfernee McLemore went down with a season-ending injury.

Auburn capped a special night with a statement win over Alabama.

"The second half, I felt like we weren't hustling", Sexton said. "We had some shots where there was no one between us and Tuscaloosa and we didn't hit them". "He asks 'coach, what do you want me to do?' Most freshman, they want balloons, they want streamers, they want shots". Leading scorer Bryce Brown also missed practice last week due to a bruised foot. Harper also had six assists after a nine-turnover, one-assist game in a loss to SC.

Pearl's teas has been focused since it first took the floor against Norfolk State in November, but down two of its starters against Alabama the focus and preparation was at a whole different level.

Okeke, who figures to be a key figure on replacing McLemore, scored 13 points in a seven-minute span of the second half.

Dunbar responded, with a career-high 14 points and also grabbed seven rebounds. Desean Murray had nine points and eight boards.

Auburn raced to an 8-0 lead in the first 1:12, with Spencer's layup and 3-pointers from Harper and Dunbar, who started in place of the flu-ridden Heron.
