Bruce Pearl says he'll be ready for basketball this weekend

AUBURN, Ala. -- Coach Bruce Pearl underwent back surgery Tuesday, but he plans to be at courtside when the Auburn basketball team opens the season, exhibition style, against West Alabama on Friday night.

Pearl's successful surgery was performed by Dr. Colby Maher at the Andrews Institute in Pensacola.

Friday’s exhibition tips off at 8:30 p.m. at the Auburn Arena. Standing-room-only tickets are available through the Auburn ticket office.

Pearl will miss a scheduled appearance at the Biringham Tipoff Club on Wednesday. Assistant coach, and former Auburn star, Chuck Person will stand in.
