Charles Barkley weighs in on Auburn's overtime victory over LSU
The Auburn Tigers came roaring back against LSU on Saturday, forcing overtime and then eventually pulling off a thrilling 91-90 win.
The game was an exciting one, and now there’s a three-way tie atop the SEC standings with Auburn, LSU and Kentucky.
After the game, Auburn legend Charles Barkley made an appearance on the postgame show, and he said he’s having fun watching this year’s Auburn team, but added that they are stressful games (via the Montgomery Advertiser):
“These games are fun to watch,” Barkley said during an appearance on the Auburn Sports Network’s postgame show Saturday afternoon. “But they are stressful.”
Still, Barkley added that he’s really proud of the way this team has played during the 2019-20 season after losing key players like Bryce Brown, Jared Harper and Chuma Okeke:
“Man, I’m so proud of those kids,” Barkley said. “As amazing as last year was, to get to the Final Four with Bryce, Jared and Chuma, and to be ranked No. 11 in the country this year with basically a brand new team — I thought last year was my peak, but I’m even more surprised and happy for these kids this year.”
