There is a chance that Auburn’s leading scorer, junior guard Bryce Brown, could miss time with a shoulder injury that he suffered late in the first half of a loss to Texas A&M on Wednesday night.

The injury is to his right shoulder and being described as a strain. Auburn held him out of Thursday’s practice, and the program is awaiting a diagnosis from the medical staff. Pearl told reporters that Brown’s shoulder was “pretty tight”.

Brown has been one of college basketball’s breakout stars this season, averaging 16.6 points while shooting 41.5 percent from three. If he does miss time it would be a major blow to a team that is clinging to a one game lead in the SEC title race.

The No. 8 Tigers travel to Georgia to play on Saturday afternoon.
