Auburn and Alabama may not have the same type of intense rivalry in basketball that they have in football, but a special guest added a spark to the latest meeting between the two teams on Wednesday night. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton returned to his alma mater and helped cheer the Tigers to a 49-37 win over Bama. “I wish I knew he was here. I would have put him in the game,” Auburn head coach Tony Barbee joked after the game. “He’s still got some eligibility left. I didn’t know he was here.
