📈 STOCK UP
🔼 Chuck it in the Bucket. Honesty Scott-Grayson equaled her career high with 31 points, and Auburn held No. 1 South Carolina to its lowest-scoring half of the SEC season, but the Gamecocks defeated the Tigers 76-54 Thursday at Neville Arena.
"I was really proud of how we came out. I thought we set the tone which we wanted to do," Auburn coach Johnnie Harris said. "We guarded our tails off. We played hard, we were tough, we battled, and that's what I wanted to see."
The Tigers held the top-ranked Gamecocks to 27 points in the first half, limiting the visitors to 28.6 percent shooting through the first two quarters. Auburn held the nation's top long-distance shooter, Te-Hina Paopao, to just one 3-pointer on four attempts.
Scott-Grayson scored 11 of Auburn's 13 third-quarter points and added 10 more in the fourth, earning the admiration of South Carolina's hall-of-fame coach.
"She was a bucket," Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley said. "I knew she was cooking us. I'm not surprised. She's a veteran player. She's got some trickery out there. She did a great job of making us guard her."
Auburn (14-7, 3-5) travels to Fayetteville, Arkansas, to play the Razorbacks on Sunday at 5 p.m. CT on SEC Network.
🔼 Let’s Roll. A total of 64 Auburn student-athletes earned a selection to the 2023 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll, the conference office announced Thursday.
The 2023 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll includes the sports of cross country, football, soccer and volleyball. It is based on grades from the 2023 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
Auburn football finished with 31 selections, while soccer had 17. Volleyball totaled 10, and cross country had six.
🔼 And…Scene. As a part of ESPN's college baseball coverage announced Thursday, Auburn baseball will be broadcast on national television on eight occasions during the 2024 regular season—six home games and two road contests.
Wildcard coverage on SEC Network and ESPN2 is scheduled for the final weekend of the regular season, May 16-18. This will allow the games most significant to the SEC race to be televised.
The entirety of the SEC Baseball Tournament from May 21-26 will also be broadcast on national television, with the first five days of action airing on SEC Network and the championship game airing on ESPN2.
In addition to the nationally televised games, 24 of Auburn's remaining 26 home games are currently scheduled to be broadcast on SEC Network+ and available for streaming on Watch ESPN.

🔼 Auburn Legend, College Football Hall of Famer Terry Beasley Passes Away. Terry Beasley, a prolific pass catcher whose Auburn receiving records have lasted more than a half-century, has passed away at the age of 73.
An All-American in 1970 and 1971, Beasley caught 141 career passes for 2,507 yards and 29 receiving touchdowns from 1969-71, program records that have stood the test of time.
Inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002, Beasley's famous No. 88 is one of three retired Auburn jerseys, along with his quarterback, Pat Sullivan's No. 7, and Bo Jackson's No. 34.
In 1970, Beasley's 52 receptions, 1,051 yards and 72 points led the SEC. As a senior the following season, he caught 55 passes and scored 12 receiving touchdowns.
"He would tell Pat, 'You throw it, I'll get it,'" remembered former Auburn athletic director and sports information director David Housel. "That's the way it was. He'd run under it and make impossible catches."
Former teammate Terry Henley recalled Beasley's physical attributes: his long, reddish-golden hair and defined musculature in an era before weight training became popular.
"It was incredible to see how this guy was put together," Henley said. "God gave him that."
Beasley's blazing speed and uncommon strength compensated for his small hands, Henley says.
"They can look at that No. 88 that's retired," Henley said. "Some of the greatest plays in Auburn history were made by that red-headed guy wearing that No. 88. He was a special guy."

🎉 TRIVIA ANSWER
Answer: San Francisco 49ers
Drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the first round in 1972, Beasley played three NFL seasons before retiring in 1975 due to injuries.
He may not have left an extensive mark on the NFL, but at Auburn, Beasley holds the record for consecutive games with a touchdown catch (8), 100-yard receiving games in a season (6) and a career (12). He held the program's career receptions record with 141 for 27 seasons until Karsten Bailey broke it in 1998.
