Wendell Green breaks Auburn record for consecutive free-throws made during Tigers’ NCAA Tournament game
March Madness is underway and Auburn’s Wendell Green has been among the most impressive players in the SEC this postseason.
He furthered that by breaking the Auburn school record for consecutive free-throws made without a single miss at a total of 28, a record previously held by former Tigers Daniel Purifoy and Frankie Sullivan.
The Tigers (20-12) entered the contest a the No. 9 overall seed in the Midwest Region of the bracket. They are currently going up against the 8-seed Iowa Hawkeyes in the first round of action.
How Green continues to build off of his accomplishments and how the Tigers continue to progress throughout the best time of the year will be something to keep an eye on as the Tigers hold a strong, 51-39 lead over the Hawkeyes with just over 12 minutes left to play in the second half.

Wendell ended up with 32 FT’s but more importantly Auburn moves to Saturday in the round of 32 with a win over Iowa. Go Tigers! Bama, Arkansas, Missouri, and Auburn all win today.
Wendell’s game needs to be driving to the hoop, getting fouled and racking up the assists. The ill advised 3 point shots are his achilles heal, especially holding the ball to take the final shot of the half/game (ending with the typical clanker).
I’m glad Pearl gave him an earful after he pulled that stunt to end the first half.
