What you need to know about Auburn

Auburn is coming off a 74-57 loss to Florida on Tuesday. Guard Jamal Johnson wasn’t much of a difference maker for Auburn, as he finished with 10 points on 3-for-11 shooting in 31 minutes on the court. Star point guard Sharife Cooper was unable to play because of a left ankle injury.

Cooper is doubtful for Saturday’s game against the Volunteers, which leaves Pearl with 20.2 points, 8.1 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game of production to replace. Without second-leading passer Justin Powell (concussion), Auburn will have to get creative in initiating its offense, while sophomore wing Allen Flanigan will likely have to play a more ball-dominant role. Flanigan is averaging 13.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

What you need to know about Tennessee

Meanwhile, Tennessee outlasted the Vanderbilt Commodores on the road on Wednesday, as they won 70-58. Tennessee’s guard Jaden Springer looked sharp with 20 points. Springer and fellow freshman Keon Johnson have taken on larger roles as the season has gone along.

Two numbers to keep in mind before tipoff: The Tigers enter the matchup with 6.3 blocked shots per game on average, which is the best in college basketball. The Volunteers come into the game boasting the 27th-most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 4.6. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
