Auburn 79, Next Level Sports 63
November 1, 1997
Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum
Auburn, Ala.

Doc Robinson had 15 points and four assists and Mamadou N'diaye recorded a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds along with five blocks in leading Auburn to a 79-63 win over Next Level Sports at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Auburn trailed only once, 16-15, with 8:42 remaining in the second quarter and used a 9-0 run to open a 32-20 lead with 3:26 left in the first half. The teams played four 10-minute quarters as opposed to a pair of 20-minute halves, due to the NCAA's experimental rule that will be in effect only for Auburn's season opener in the NABC Classic against Temple. Auburn took a 36-27 lead to the locker room and used runs of 9-0 in the third quarter and 8-0 in the fourth quarter to outscore Next Level 43-36 in the second half. Freshman guard Scott Pohlman had 13 points and four assists, and sophomore guard Daymeon Fishback added 12 points and had two steals in the win.
