CANCUN, Mexico -
The Auburn basketball team closed out its three-game Mexican tour with a 104-72 win over Selecciones Cancun on Saturday behind 18 points apiece from Quan Prowell and Lucas Hargrove.
Rasheem Barrett, who had 17 points with three treys, led the Tigers averaging 19.7 points in all three games followed by Prowell, who scored 18 points in each.
The Tigers jumped out to a 27-12 first quarter lead and coasted the rest of the way.
"We shot the ball well tonight, and we ended the trip on a good note," said Auburn head coach Jeff Lebo. "We made 13 three-pointers, and we didn't miss that many. That was very good to see."
Junior walk-on Drew Smith made the first start of his Auburn career and finished with 8 points, including a pair of 3-pointers.
"It felt good to start, and it was something new for me, but it was exciting and fun," said Smith. "I came out there and had as much confidence as I could have.
"I played more minutes than I played in my whole career. I was tired at the end, though. I always cheer on the guys from the bench, and it felt really good to have them cheering for me tonight. I am not going to lie about that."
Korvotney Barber scored 14 points while Josh Dollard added 12 points, Quantez Robertson 8 points, Frank Tolbert 5 points and Matt Heramb 4 points.
The Tigers will return to Auburn on Monday afternoon.
