Auburn Men's Basketball - Highlights at Georgia

Making his first start at Auburn, Chad Baker-Mazara responded with a career-high 25 points to lead the Tigers to a 97-76 win at Georgia on Saturday.

"Chad Baker-Mazara was the best player on the floor tonight, and nobody is terribly surprised by that," Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said.

Baker-Mazara was inserted into the starting lineup against the Bulldogs as Pearl looked to shake things up with Jaylin Williams out due to injury. He came out firing with eight points and a pair of 3-pointers in the game's first four minutes. He closed out the first half with 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the field.

"To be honest, I just realized the guy in front of me couldn't guard me," Baker-Mazara said. "I told Coach (Pearl), 'Let's take advantage of that.' He believed in me today, put the ball in my hands, and thankfully I got to execute."
