Under first-year head coach Johnnie Harris, the Auburn Tigers are already making waves, taking down No. 18 Georgia Tech 59-51 on Sunday.
It’s the Tigers’ first Top-25 win on the road since 2014 and their first win over a ranked opponent since 2019, when they defeated Missouri at home.

The Tigers trailed for less than a minute in Atlanta as they improved their record to 2-2.
Junior guard Honesty Scott-Grayson led the Tigers in scoring with 18 points and six rebounds. She went four for eight on three-pointers. Guard Aicha Coulibaly added 14 points and five rebounds in the win.
It marks back-to-back wins for Auburn, who ended the longest losing streak in program history last week at 19 games.
For Georgia Tech, it’s their first loss of the season after being limited to a season-low 35.2 percent shooting from the field.
Auburn is back in action on Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET against Little Rock.
