Congratulations to Auburn forward Isaac Okoro on being named SEC Freshman of the Week on Monday!
Auburn forward Isaac Okoro, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound freshman from Powder Springs, Ga., had 18 points, nine rebounds, three assists and a block in Auburn’s overtime win against Furman.
He posted career marks for both scoring and rebounding while scoring a team-best six points in overtime, including a perfect 4-for-4 from the foul line.
Okoro made final two free throws to ice game away and elevate Auburn’s lead to three with one second remaining.
He paced Auburn to a 14-point comeback in the second half – the Tigers’ largest come-from-behind victory since defeating Georgia (16) in 2018.
