Tide Women's Basketball At AU
"The team will be ready to play Thursday night," said Alabama Coach Wendell Hudson. "We all understand the rivalry there. It will be a good game, and I know that everyone will be excited to play. I think we need to continue to keep playing the way that we have been able to play recently. Part of that will be making shots and taking one possession at a time."
Thursday's game will be the 75th contest between the two teams with Auburn leading the series 41-33. The previous game this season resulted in a 65-55 victory for the Tigers in Tuscaloosa, however the Tide did win the last game at Auburn on February 17, 2011, by a score of 59-51.

After a close seven minutes to open the game, South Carolina pulled ahead with back-to-back threes. The Gamecocks would maintain the lead for the duration of the game. Sophomore Jasmine Robinson led all scorers with 17 points, while junior Kyra Crosby grabbed her first double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
