Though technically being the first man off the bench, Canyon Barry has been the most important player for Florida during SEC play. The College of Charleston transfer is averaging a team-high 12.7 ppg in conference play and has made a school-record 39 consecutive free throws, thanks to adopting his legendary father’s underhanded technique. In the five games since not playing against LSU, Barry has been averaging 13.8 points and has just one turnover.
Auburn is coming off an atrocious 90-84 defeat to Ole Miss in which the Tigers allowed 63 second-half points. There is certainly optimism for the program, as the three leading scorers are all freshmen. Mustapha Heron has been particularly impressive with the guard leading the team in ppg and rpg while scoring double-digit points in every game this season.
