AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn freshman Austin Wiley had his biggest game since enrolling at midseason, collecting 19 points and nine rebounds in an 84-64 victory over rival Alabama on Saturday .

Wiley and fellow freshman Mustapha Heron combined for 29 points in the second half for Auburn (13-6, 3-4 Southeastern Conference). Heron made three 3-pointers and scored 13 points in a 5-1/2-minute stretch when the Tigers started to pull away in a game that was tied at halftime.

Auburn scored 12 straight points heading into the final 2 minutes. Ronnie Johnson scored 17 points in 20 minutes and Heron made all three long-range attempts and finished with 15 points.

Braxton Key led Alabama (11-7, 4-2) with 18 points and Riley Norris added 10.
