AUBURN: Last season: 18-14, lost to Missouri in first round of SEC tournament
Who's gone: G T.J. Dunans (8.2 ppg, 2nd in assists); G Ronnie Johnson (7.8 ppg, 3rd in assists).
Who's back: G Mustapha Heron led team in scoring (15.2 ppg) and rebounding (6.1 rpg) last season; F Danjel Purifoy averaged 11.5 points and led team with 59 3-pointers; C Austin Wiley (8.8 ppg, 4.7 rpg); G Jared Harper (11.4 ppg, team-high 95 assists).
Who's new: G Davion Mitchell is a four-star prospect and strong defender at the point. F Chuma Okeke, another four-star signee, averaged a double-double in points and rebounds during a four-game Italy tour.
The Skinny: The Tigers appeared poised to make a run at their first NCAA Tournament since 2003, but open with a cloud of uncertainty instead. Associate head coach Chuck Person has been arrested in a federal investigation for allegedly accepting bribes to steer Auburn pro prospects to a financial advisor after college. Part of that money allegedly went to families of two recruits, possibly leaving them ineligible. Auburn and investigators haven't disclosed the players' identity.
MISSISSIPPI ST: Last season: 14-17
Who's gone: F Gavin Ware, G Craig Sword, G Malik Newman, G/F Travis Daniels
Who's back: G Quinndary Weatherspoon. The sophomore was one of the SEC's most productive freshmen last season, averaging 12 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. G I.J. Ready. The veteran point guard played in 30 games, starting 22, and averaged 9.2 points per game.
Who's new: F Schnider Herard. Mississippi State needs a big-bodied forward and the 6-foot-10, 250-pounder should get plenty of playing time. G/F Mario Kegler. The 6-foot-7 freshman should be an immediate contributor after playing last season at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. G Tyson Carter. The 6-foot-4 guard will be playing for his hometown team after starring for Starkville HS. Gives the Bulldogs a 3-point shooting presence they lacked at times last season.
The Skinny: The Bulldogs haven't made the NCAA Tournament since 2009, but Howland, who is in his second season with the program, has quickly amassed some impressive talent that could make the program competitive in the SEC once again.
No. 22 Auburn seek homecourt edge in visit to Mississippi State

Bruce Pearl is taking his Auburn Tigers and their No. 22 ranking on the road this weekend.

He's also bringing some of his homecourt advantage with him when his team travels to take on Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss., on Saturday.

"We've got at least two buses of students heading west," Pearl said Thursday, according to the website SEC Country. "That's really exciting for our students and for our fans. It's not going to win or lose us the game, but it'll really improve the environment."

Pearl is trying to mimic with his basketball program what SEC football manages to generate: traveling fans.

"It just makes each environment very bowl-like, very tournament-like," Pearl said. "Like the NCAA Tournament, it's not (like) the place is full and we've got 20 people sitting behind our bench, maybe, and that's it. That doesn't make for as competitive an environment."

Auburn (15-1, 3-0 SEC) is ranked this week for the first time in 15 years and has won 13 straight games, the nation's second-longest streak after West Virginia's 14 straight wins.

Despite the winning streak, Pearl got a piece of bad news Thursday.

The NCAA ruled that Tigers center Austin Wiley, the 2016-17 starter who hasn't played this season, will not be eligible until 2018-19. Third-year sophomore Danjel Purifoy was also ruled ineligible for the remainder of the season.

The ruling came after Auburn self-reported violations involving recruiting, extra benefits and agent-related activity.

Pearl was not happy.

"I'm very disappointed in the NCAA's decision that was made today regarding Austin," Pearl said Thursday night, according to the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser. "He is a terrific kid, and he is a victim in this.

"We've been hit in the mouth, hit in the gut. The hardest thing is that (Wiley) can't be out there with is, and that's the same thing with Daniel. He wants to be out there helping."

On Tuesday, the Tigers overcame a 10-point halftime deficit by outscoring Mississippi 50-25 in the second half of a 75-60 win that left Pearl perplexed.

"Usually (I am) able to come in and explain how we were able to win a game. I not sure on this night that I can," Pearl told the Advertiser. "I don't think there is any question that we guarded them in the second half and we wore them down."

Mississippi State (13-3, 1-2), which has dropped consecutive games after a 13-1 start to the season, had the opposite experience against the Rebels on Saturday.

The Bulldogs blew a 50-39 lead over the game's final 10 minutes and lost to the Rebels, 64-58.

"We're a young team," Bulldogs coach Ben Howland told the (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger. "We've got to make better decisions with leads late in games."

Mississippi State will also need better offensive efforts from the Weatherspoon brothers.

Quinndary Weatherspoon, the Bulldogs' leading scorer (14.4 points per game), and Nick Weatherspoon (third at 11.1) were a combined 6-for-22 in the loss as Mississippi State missed all 13 of its 3-point attempts in the second half.

"I still think that we can get a lot better than we are," he said. "When you look at our shooting, we need to be patient when we don't have the push game."

Quinndary Weatherspoon bounced back to score 16 in a 71-54 Wednesday loss at Florida. The Bulldogs shot 40 percent and allowed a 27-7 run during the second half.

The Bulldogs have another home game on Tuesday against Vanderbilt.

Auburn plays at in-state rival Alabama on Wednesday.
