Analysis: Could be a good matchup. Auburn coming off a big win over LSU and showed it can step up in crunch time. Vandy on a roll winning first three SEC contests with home win over Fl and two road wins over 'Bama and South Carolina.
Vandy has a deep bench with 6'11" Festus Ezeli and forwards Lance Goulbourne and Steve Tchengang providing a lot of support. Jenkins, who also comes off the bench, is the first five star Vandy recruit. A frosh, he has an awesome stroke from three.
Auburn is going to have to match Vandy's shooting and hustle, hustle, hustle. Vandy is always tough at Memorial and Ogilvy has been on fire lately, averaging 20 in SEC play.
Frankie Sullivan, Tay Waller and Reed will have to really be on their game and Knox will have to try and neutralize Ogilvy. Earnest Ross will help off the bench.
