Auburn's Anfernee McLemore roasts Alabama with answer at SEC basketball media day
What would a media day be without a jab from a player about the Auburn-Alabama rivalry?
On Wednesday at SEC basketball media day, Tigers senior forward Anfernee McLemore was one of the players to speak with the media. One of the questions McLemore was asked — where is his favorite place to play in the SEC outside of Auburn Arena?
For Auburn fans, his answer should be obvious.
Coleman Coliseum at Alabama.
“I like the look of disappointment on their faces when we win,” McLemore said, according to Josh Vitale of the Montgomery Advertiser.
That was what happened last season, as Auburn beat Alabama twice. The Tigers went on to finish 30-10 and reach the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history.
Now, Auburn is getting ready for a new season, and it should have high expectations after last year’s success.
The Tigers open the year when they host Georgia Southern on Nov. 5. McLemore’s favorite road game will come Jan. 15, as that’s when Auburn will travel to take on rival Alabama this season.
