AUBURN, Ala. – The Alabama women's basketball team dropped an 81-40 decision at Auburn on Thursday night at Auburn Arena. The loss puts the Crimson Tide at 12-17 overall and 2-13 against Southeastern Conference opponents, while the win moves the Tigers to 12-16 on the season and 4-11 in the league.

"I thought Auburn got off to a good start and took us out of what we needed to do," said Alabama head coach Wendell Hudson. "We never recovered from that. They scored on nearly every possession, and we did not do a good job of handling the pressure."

Alabama finished the game with 29 turnovers of which Auburn scored 37 points off of. The Tigers shot 49.2 percent (30-for-61) from the floor and 55.6 percent (10-for-18) from three-point range, while the Tide was 31.8 percent (14-for-44) for the game.

In addition, Auburn had 16 steals. Junior Jessica Merritt led Alabama in scoring with 15 points, while freshman Aneesah Daniels was the Tide's leader in rebounds with nine. Auburn would score the first basket of the game at the 19:42 mark and would hold onto the lead for the duration.

Alabama cut the Tiger's 19-point lead down to 12 with 4:25 remaining in the half, however Auburn would score 12 unanswered points to close out the first and head into the locker room with a 47-23 advantage.

The Tigers continued to shoot well from the floor in the second half, starting things off with a 7-0 run over the opening 90 seconds. Auburn led by as many as 39 in the game. Alabama will close out the regular season on Sunday when it heads to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt. Tipoff is slated for 3 p.m. CT.
