Auburn 70, Angola National Team 69 (exh.)
November 17, 1995
Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum
Auburn, Ala.

Franklin Williams' layup with :04 remaining in regulation gave Auburn, minus starting point guard Moochie Norris and forward Chris Davis, a 70-69 win over the Angola National Team Friday in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Both Norris and Davis will be withheld from basketball practice and competition until questions about their eligibility status have been resolved. Williams scored the Tigers' final four points to hold off a rally by the Angolans in the final five minutes when the lead changed five times. The Tigers led by their largest margin of 63-58 with 4:53 left. Consecutive defensive stops and 3-pointers by forward Angelo Vitoriano gave the Angolans the lead 64-63. AU responded with a Lance Weems trey with 2:18 left to give the Tigers a two-point lead. Williams chipped in two foul shots at the 1:42 mark to pad the lead, 68-64. But a driving hook by Angolan Nelson Sardinha narrowed the Tiger advantage to 68-66 with 1:00 left. Then an Auburn misfire gave guard Brian Romano an open 3-pointer and Angola the lead 69-68 with 26 seconds left. Following a timeout, Auburn point guard Wes Flanigan drove the lane on its final possession, dishing to Williams in the lane for the final score.
