Auburn’s Tyrese Tanner (32) blocks Tulane’s Jamie Kaplan (24) during the Tigers WNIT Sweet 16 victory at the Auburn Arena.

Another Auburn opponent bit the dust tonight as the Women’s Basketball Team defeated their third post season foe by blowing out Tulane 72 – 52.

As with the first two wins, the Tigers did it with a high pressure defense that had 11 steals; which set a new school record for steals with 396.

A red hot Tyrese Tanner again led the way, this time by hitting her first double-double with  25 points and 11 rebounds.

Coach Williams-Flournoy has her Tigers hitting on all cylinders. And it looks like they are playing their best basketball of the year.

The Tigers now advance to the WNIT Elite Eight, and will play the winner of Thursday’s Drexel-Bowling Green game.

Congrats Tigers and keep it going!

    …..It’s looking like this team was NCAA-worthy, but early season struggles prevented that possibility. I’m enjoying this run, and looking forward to next season. I love watching aggressive basketball!

    …..I should add that it’s been a LONG time since Auburn was much of a factor in post-season play. Usually, the team has wilted badly at this point. Brighter days are ahead, right?
