The Tigers, who are ranked 24th in ESPN's initial BPI computer ratings, welcome back their four leading scorers from last season: Freshman All-SEC Mustapha Heron (15.2), Danjel Purifoy (11.5), Jared Harper (11.4) and Austin Wiley (8.8), as Auburn was the only team in the country to have freshmen as its top four scorers last season. Auburn returns 72.8 percent of its scoring and 65.8 percent of its rebounding from 2016-17 when the Tigers won 18 games, the most wins since 2008-09. It is the highest percentage of scoring and rebounding the Tigers have returned in 10 years. Auburn last played in the Gildan Charleston Classic in 2012.
