Tonight Auburn played UT Martin in their opening game of the NIT, and won 87-82 in a hard fought game. It was great to see Auburn back in the NIT and with the win today, the next game will be on Friday against either Tulsa or Northwestern. It was a three point shoot out in the first half and UT Martin never game up and came back to make it a two possession game at one point (see Auburn holds off UT Martin in NIT opener).
The Tigers started off the game very strong and many of the photos below are from the early part of the game. We will be at the game on Friday and I will post some additional photos after that game ends in two days. Enjoy.
