Auburn, Ala.

Auburn used double-figure scoring performances from Daymeon Fishback (19), Wes Flanigan (14), Pat Burke (10) and Franklin Williams (10) to never trail in downing Mississippi State 81-68 Wednesday at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Fishback scored 13 of his career-high 19 points in the second half, including a trio of 3-pointers. With the Tigers only up 51-44 at the 14:01 mark, the freshman hit a 3-pointer that ignited Auburn on a 24-18 run that gave the Tigers a 75-60 lead with 3:12 left in the game. Fishback scored 10 of Auburn's points during the run. The Tigers led 40-35 at the half, and the closest State would get in the second half was 5 points. Auburn, which had averaged 54 points in the previous six games, scored 81, marking the most in 12 games. Burke recorded his fifth double-double of the season with a game-high 12 rebounds and 10 points. Bart Hyche led State with 18 points and Horatio Webster and Trey Moore scored 17 each.
