Chris Denson scored 19 points - including the go-ahead 3-pointer with just over two minutes left - and Rob Chubb tied his career high with 21 as Auburn rallied from a 14-point deficit to defeat Georgia Southern 78-75 on Friday night.
The Tigers (9-3) outscored the Eagles (3-8) 31-18 in the final 10 minutes to come away with the win.
Denson's 3-pointer gave Auburn a 71-69 lead, its first since 15-14 early in the first half. He had 14 points in the second half.
Varez Ward had 13 points and Kenny Gabriel added 12, including two big 3-pointers in the second half, to help Auburn pull out the win.
Eric Ferguson had a big night for Georgia Southern, finishing with 20 points, but he was limited for much of the second half due to foul trouble and eventually fouled out. Willie Powers added 23 for the Eagles.
