Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour: An Honest Review 2023

' src=

The Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour in Broome, Western Australia, was recommended to us by family and friends, so we decided to book a tour while we were on holiday there. Find out what we thought of this tour, if it was worth the money, and essential information to make the most of your day.

Willie Creek Pearl Farm Directions

Willie Creek Pearl Farm is located 38 km out of Broome on the estuary of Willie Creek, in Australia’s North West region . They offer a Coach Tour (the option we chose) that provides an air-conditioned transfer from most hotels and campsites in Broome.

If you are doing the Willie Creek Pearl Farm self-drive tour , I recommend a 4wd as part of the drive is on an unsealed road. If you are hiring a vehicle , check with the hire company that you are allowed to drive there, as some do not allow it.

Give yourself an hour to get there if you are driving.

Head out of Broome along the Broome Highway for 10kms then turn left onto Cape Leveque Road for 15km. Turn left onto Manari Road for 5 km, then left onto Willie Creek Road for 7.5 km. You will see signs for Willie Creek.

You may need to take the alternative track in the wet season (call ahead, and they will advise the best route).

Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour Review

Our day started by being collected outside our accommodation in Cable Beach. There were a few more stops to collect other passengers, but it was an excellent way to look at other Cable Beach accommodation choices. Once everyone was on board, we made our way to the Willie Creek Pearl Farm.

Anne, our driver, gave an interesting commentary about Broome and the places we drove past, including Kerry Stokes’s house. Learning more about Broome’s history, tourism, and architectural designs was fascinating. The journey took around 45 minutes. Be prepared for a bumpy ride, as part of the journey is on corrugated unsealed roads.

Upon arrival, the tour group went to the hatchery, where we learned about the oysters’ collection and spawning.

We then moved into an undercover area where we were told about how the oysters are seeded and harvested. It’s a great insight into the process of modern cultured pearl farming. Our guide also explained what makes a perfect pearl, how they are valued, and the creation of beautiful jewellery.

I gained a new appreciation for all the hard work, skill, and long hours to create the perfect pearl.

the willie creek pearl farm tour guide speaking to visitors about the pearls

Pearls were handed around so we could see what they looked like and the difference between them.

The Keshi Pearls are the closest to natural pearls and are irregular in shape. They are valued on weight instead of size.

The Australian South Sea Cultured Pearl is the world’s most revered pearl, produced by the Pinctada maxima oyster from the coastal waters of northern Western Australia. It creates the most beautiful pearl nacre of any oyster.

three pearls in a box

Only some oysters produce a pearl, and most only create one at a time.

The oyster shell is also valuable due to its lustrous mother of pearl.

At the end of this part of the tour, the guide carefully opened one of the oysters so we could see inside. I was amazed at how big the shell was, and look at that stunning pearl inside.

It was then time for the morning tea, which was included in the tour price. There was plenty of fresh fruit, damper, fruit cake plus hot & cold drinks. We used this time to have a little wander around the property.

fresh drinks at willie creek pearl farm

After morning tea, we were taken down to the creek’s jetty to go and view oysters in their natural environment. We hopped into a boat and cruised to see live oysters suspended in the water.

people getting on the Willie Creek Pearls boat

Our guide hauled a panel up so we could see what the oysters looked like. These are just a small sample of what happens in the open water sea lease, ten nautical miles off Broome’s coast.

guide on Willie Creek Pearl Tour holding up panel with oysters attached

The oysters filter around 50 litres of water per hour and feed on microscopic phytoplankton. It takes up to 2 years for the Australian South Sea Pearls to fully develop.

During this time, the oysters require regular cleaning. Backpackers are often employed for this task, to remove marine growth from the shells.

A short cruise along the azure waters of Willie Creek is also included to spot any wildlife. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any crocodiles, but we spotted a few different types of birds.

The water is such a stunning turquoise colour due to its amount of crushed limestone. The mangroves make the perfect home for an abundance of wildlife.

Lastly, we saw the pearls on display in the showroom and dreamed of owning an exquisite pair of earrings or necklace.

So would we recommend this tour? It was in our Top 3 of Things to do in Broome despite the feeling that it wasn’t incredible value for money. It was a great experience to see first-hand how a pearl farm operates and gain insight into the pearling industry. It is also a stunning place to spend a few hours and to be able to cruise Willie Creek. I’m glad we did it and would recommend it to friends.

Name and History of Willie Creek

Willie means wind and boats would shelter in the creek during cyclones.

The Banfield family, who moved to Broome in 1989, now own the pearl farm. They began by operating Broome bus lines and developed it into a tour company. The tours took guests to Willie Creek, which led them to purchase the pearl farm.

The family also owns the Zoo Keepers Store, Pearl Luggers, and Discover Broome Tour. The Pearl Luggers tour will provide the complete pearl experience.

Plan Your Holiday To Australia’s North West

Pearls and pearling in broome, broome’s story is forever entwined with the pearling industry, and it’s said that the town was founded on buttons., for many years the town’s rhythms were marked by the departure and return of the pearling luggers on the ebb and flow of the 10m tides. their cargo was the prized pinctada maxima mother of pearl, used to make buttons and fine cutlery..

Today, Broome is still known for its pearling industry, which produces some of the finest pearls in the world. 

Founded as a pearling port in 1880s, by the turn of the century over 300 luggers were plying the rich waters of Broome’s Roebuck Bay. Thus began the boom times, but a massive decline in production occurred during World War II when Broome’s foreign labour was sent to indentured camps and much of the pearling fleet was torched to save it falling into enemy hands. In another blow, the world discovered plastic in the 1950s, marking the end of demand for mother of pearl shell.

Cultured pearling techniques were introduced by the Japanese soon after and quickly took off in Broome, which continues to produce the majority of the world’s finest quality cultured South Sea Pearls.

Explore Broome’s pearling heritage  on a guided tour, by following the self-guided  Jetty to Jetty Walk , and visiting the Broome Historical Society Museum.  See how cultured pearls are farmed  on a pearl farm tour, with departures from Broome and on the Dampier Peninsula.

Visit the glittering pearl and diamond jewellery showrooms  of Chinatown in Broome, where local and internationally known brands showcase beautiful designs, many featuring locally grown pearls.

September traditionally marks the end of the pearl harvest season, when the fortunes of the pearl farmer are told. What better time to celebrate?  Shinju Matsuri,  or the  Festival of the Pearl , is a true Broome institution! It takes place annually in September with events such as the Sunset Long Table Dinner, beachside sculptures, art awards, music events and more.

Take a local pearl farm tour in Broome, WA

pearl tours in broome

Somewhat isolated, ruggedly beautiful and culturally diverse, Broome is located 1,681 kilometres north of Perth, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Famous for its Cable Beach , the ‘Staircase to the Moon’ and other local attractions, Broome is also known for housing several galleries showcasing some of the most unique Aboriginal art in the country.

Aside from this, Broome is popular for being a coastal town with a rich pearling history.

If you’re going on a holiday to Western Australia, or just looking for things to do in Broome , make sure you add a pearl farm tour to your bucket list.

A short history of the pearling industry in Broome

Pearl luggers off Cable Beach in Broome as the sun sets over the water.

Pearl luggers off Cable Beach in Broome as the sun sets over the water.

Broome’s pearling history dates back as far as the 1880s after pearls and their shells were ‘discovered’ at Nickol Bay in Western Australia’s Pilbara region back in 1861.

To augment their income, European settlers like John Withnell, a pastoralist, collected as much as 6 tonnes of pearl shells every day near the mouth of the De Grey River. When news about the rich supply of pearl shells in the area spread, Broome and its abundant shell beds at Eighty Mile Beach became the centre of attention by the early 1880s.

The size of the Broome pearl oyster, Pinctada maxima , was critical to the pearling industry’s prosperity since it supplied mother-of-pearl for cutlery handles, buttons, and buckles, as well as an inlay for furniture. Natural pearls were incredibly uncommon and precious, so when they were discovered, they were stored in a secured box on the lugger.

Although the pearling industry in Broome benefited the local economy, diving in the Kimberley waters was risky. The crew, mainly comprising Aboriginal skin divers (who wore no diving apparatus or protection), had to face the risk of developing beriberi, ear and chest infections, as well as meeting crocodiles and sharks and experiencing the bends and cyclones.

Broome supplied 80 per cent of the world’s pearl shell by 1914, and the industry employed over 400 luggers and 3,500 workers. Pearl shell was worth £400 a tonne during the peak of the pearling industry in Broome.

The diverse population of Chinese, Japanese, Sri Lankans, West Australians (primarily Aborigines), Torres Strait Islanders, Filipinos, Malaysians, and other people from across Asia provided the much-needed labour in the pearling industry.

Only British subjects were allowed to possess pearl luggers under the WA Pearling Act of 1913 , resulting in a rigid class system. The Japanese worked primarily as divers, the Malaysians and other migrants as deckhands and crew, and so on.

Sadly, there were many casualties from both the group of Aboriginal skin divers and other pearl diving nationalities, as evidenced in the Japanese and Chinese cemeteries in Broome.

Of course, the Broome we know today has completely broken away from its sordid past. However, pearl farming in Broome remains a vital part of the economy and is an important feature in local tours.

A trip here won’t be complete without learning about the rich pearling heritage of Broome and other parts of the Kimberley region.

Willie Creek

The Willie Creek Pearl Farm , which is easily accessible 38 kilometres out of Broome, offers excursions that demonstrate how a pearl is produced on this side of the world.

While the original company started out as a tour bus service, they eventually expanded to pearling, which has enabled them to offer unique pearling experiences to tourists.

Here, you’ll learn everything there is to know about the pearling industry. You can also get right in on the action by taking a leisurely cruise on the waters of Willie Creek or a scenic helicopter trip over the area. Before you head off, take a look at their stunning pearl jewellery.

Paspaley South Sea pearls

Known for their Paspaley South Sea pearls, Paspaley is Australia’s biggest and oldest pearling company. It was established in the 1930s by Nicholas Paspalis (Paspaley) Snr in Cossack when the demand for mother-of-pearl shells was still high. By the 1950s, the demand for pearl shells dropped, as plastic took over as the material of choice in making buttons.

The company then turned its attention to pearl cultivation of South Sea pearls – which also became the centrepiece of the Australian pearling industry during that time. Today, Paspaley is a major global player in the cultured pearls category and produces fine jewellery with cultured pearls.

Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm

Dean Brown found the remote, unspoiled beauty of Cygnet Bay and the unique Pinctada maxima pearl shell while exploring the pristine Kimberley coastline in a wooden lugger in 1946.

Brown’s pearling dream came true when he established the first Australian-owned and operated South Sea pearl farm in the Dampier Peninsula north of Broome.

You may visit Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm for a pearl farm tour, a sea safari along the breathtaking coastline, or to purchase pearls directly from the farm at their showroom.

How Bruce Pearl turned Auburn basketball’s depth into its superpower

FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS - JANUARY 06: K.D. Johnson #0 of the Auburn Tigers celebrates on the bench in the second half during the game against the Arkansas Razorbacks at Bud Walton Arena on January 06, 2024 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Tigers defeated the Razorbacks 83-51.  (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It’s 30 minutes before a Wednesday night tipoff at Vanderbilt, and Bruce Pearl has just finished scribbling the game plan in remarkable detail on a whiteboard inside the visitors’ locker room. His Auburn players return from their warm-up routine on the court and take a seat for Pearl’s pregame speech. “Good energy out there?” Pearl asks.

Advertisement

Fifth-year senior Jaylin Williams shakes his head. The Commodores are the worst team in the league, and several inches of snow are on the ground outside so, no, there’s no magic inside Memorial Gymnasium. “Gonna have to create our own,” Williams tells his coach. Pearl loves that idea. He begins thunder-clapping, bobbing his head, clenching his jaws, pacing in front of the players like a man who just lit a stick of dynamite and planned to hold on until the last possible second. He is the Henry Ford of manufacturing tension.

The night before, he’d ended practice by huddling his team and barking, “Let’s hit these guys in the mouth … and let’s run them out of the building.” Doing exactly that, over and over, for six straight weeks and 11 consecutive victories by double-digit margins, has turned the No. 8 Tigers into contenders. They’re 16-2 overall, 5-0 in SEC play, alone atop the conference standings as they head to rival Alabama on Wednesday night.

Computers love Auburn — ranked top-six by all of the metrics-based sites, top-three by some — and humans are coming around, despite a glaring lack of marquee victories. While there are zero Quad 1 wins, which might hurt the Tigers come Selection Sunday, there are just so many  beatdowns. They’ve won their last 11 games by an average of 21.8 points, including a 28-point rout of Indiana and a 32-point humiliation of Arkansas that represented the worst defeat in Bud Walton Arena history. All of their wins have come by double digits.

Not bad for a team picked to finish sixth in the SEC.

But that wasn’t a wild notion at the time. Auburn finished seventh last season and, other than five-star freshman guard Aden Holloway , did not reload the roster with flashy additions. The Tigers lack star power — former Morehead State transfer Johni Broome is probably their best and most recognizable player — but Pearl believed all along that the sum of this squad would be greater than its parts.

“The bad thing is, when the ball gets tossed, our five guys may not be that much better than anybody else’s five guys,” Pearl said at SEC media day on Oct. 18. “But when I go to the bench, I’m not dropping off.”

He was exactly right. The Tigers have 10 players averaging at least 15 minutes per game but none averaging more than 23. They’re third in the country, first among high-majors, in bench scoring at 37.7 points per game. Most mind-boggling of all, via EvanMiya.com: Among five-man lineups that have played at least 90 possessions together this season, the most efficient quintet in college basketball is … Auburn’s first five guys off the bench.

That is a demoralizing kind of depth. Opponents are left wondering when they get to catch their breath, while Pearl just keeps pressing the gas pedal. With a top-10 offense and defense, there are no breaks — or brakes — against Auburn. The Tigers will tell you there’s something extremely satisfying about crushing the other team’s will.

“Just seeing that look in their eye and knowing they’re about to give up, they’re about to break,” junior guard Denver Jones says, “and then we step on their neck.”

The secret sauce in Auburn’s success so far has been a collective sacrifice that is especially rare in the transfer portal era, when the pursuit of more minutes and shot attempts — not to mention name, image and likeness paydays — drives constant roster churn. Yet somehow Pearl’s team is humming along while seven of his 10 rotational players are getting fewer minutes than they did last year with the Tigers or their previous team.

“In recruiting, I tell them, ‘I’m going to bring guys in that you’re going to want to play with, that you’re going to want to be friends with, that you’re going to want to make history with,’” Pearl says. “But, look, when you get in the transfer portal, there’s a bunch of guys who only care about the wrong things. So you know what? We took guys from junior college, Division II, mid-major. Guys who go, ‘You mean I get  to be at Auburn?’”

Last night was special 🔥 pic.twitter.com/dkSNNjuv29 — Auburn Basketball (@AuburnMBB) January 22, 2024

Broome, a preseason All-SEC pick, is averaging just 23.3 minutes — down from 26.5 last season and 28.3 as a sophomore at Morehead — but his scoring is up (15.3) and rebounding is the same (8.4). His backup, 6-foot-11, 250-pound Dylan Cardwell , would start for plenty of high-major programs but gets just 15.3 minutes per game for the Tigers. Cardwell’s per-40 numbers: 15.9 points, 11.7 boards, 3.6 blocks, 2.9 assists, 2.0 steals.

“He’s a handful down there,” Broome says. “That would definitely be a hassle having to deal with both of us. There’s a little fatigue you see start to set in, when the other team’s five man plays the whole game, and we’re just rotating in and out, always fresh. The starters sit down and maybe we’re up four and the other team feels like, ‘OK, we got to their bench and we’re in good shape.’ Four minutes later, they’re down 10 and here come the starters back in.

“A lot of guys, including myself, could go somewhere else and play 35 minutes, but you’re probably not going to win as much.”

Williams, a former top-100 recruit who has waited patiently for his time to shine, is also averaging 23.3 minutes — down from 27.8 last season — but enjoying career highs in points (12.5), rebounds (5.1) and field-goal percentage (.634). Auburn’s 11-game winning streak has coincided with the best stretch of his career: 15.5 points per game on 70 percent shooting. Pearl says Williams represents “exactly what I want Auburn basketball to look like.” As well as he’s playing, he still cedes an average of 15.4 minutes at the four spot to Division II transfer Chaney Johnson , an Alabama native who plays exactly like someone who is now living a dream.

“It’s so much fun, knowing Chaney is going to come in behind me playing just as hard and as physical as I am,” Williams says. “Not many teams play this way, this unselfishly, and it’s really an amazing thing. Our strength is in numbers. I felt that most at Arkansas.They probably have more talented players than us, but we have more depth and we just don’t stop, and in the second half, they were tired and their bodies were shutting down, and they couldn’t keep up with us. Then they started getting a little frustrated, because when guys get tired, they blame other people. That’s when you know it’s over.”

Holloway is just the fifth McDonald’s All-American ever to sign with Auburn, but he’s averaging only 21.8 minutes in a point-guard timeshare with sophomore Tre Donaldson (18.6 minutes), a former four-star football recruit who is built like one. Combined, they average 17.3 points, 6.7 assists, and only 2.4 turnovers.

“It takes some pressure off,” says Holloway, who turned 19 in September. “I’ve been on great teams my whole career, but I’ve never been on one where I can rely on all my teammates this way. It really allows me to play the game freely. You don’t have to overthink or press, just play, and if it’s not going your way, someone else will pick it up.”

Jones was a first-team All-Conference USA selection last season at Florida International, where he averaged 33.4 minutes, 14 field-goal attempts and 20.1 points, second-most in the league. He’s a starter for the Tigers now, but his minutes (20.4), shots (5.5) and points (6.9) have all plummeted. Pearl told him that might happen, but he also promised to make Jones a much better defender, and he has. Jones might be Auburn’s best perimeter defender these days.

“I really wanted to be part of a winning culture,” he says. “I wanted to win a natty, and I feel like we’ve got a team to go in March Madness and win it all. There are times I wish my role was bigger, but I fight the temptation, because I’ve got great players around me and that’s what I wanted, to be part of a great team .”

His fellow two-guard, K.D. Johnson , has similarly sacrificed. Johnson started for the Tigers two years ago when they won 28 games and an SEC championship. He averaged 27.8 minutes that season, and now it’s down to 17.4 minutes and a career-low 6.1 shots per game coming off the bench. Broome describes him as “a Tasmanian devil who flies around and brings energy,” and there was at least some concern about how Johnson, Auburn’s wild-eyed gunner, might handle a shrinking role.

“A couple years ago, K.D. would’ve been checked out, just not mature enough to step up and take that on,” Williams says. “But K.D. is a whole different cat now. He sees the bigger picture now. He knows how he can help us win, and he wants to do those things.”

Nine times in the Tigers’ last 11 wins, Johnson has made at least one impactful play — a steal, a runout dunk or layup, an offensive rebound, a momentum-swinging 3 — within his first three minutes off the bench. Five times this season, he’s done that within his first 106 seconds on the floor. He enters every game as if shot out of a cannon.

“It’s probably the most fun I’ve had here,” Johnson says. “We’re doing great right now, so I’m rocking with it.”

Pearl has always played a lot of guys, nine or 10 of them getting 10-plus minutes per game on most of his teams, because it mitigates the effects of untimely injury or foul trouble. When first-round pick Chuma Okeke tore his ACL in the 2019 Sweet 16, Auburn still had enough to beat Kentucky in the Elite Eight. Pearl believes in constantly developing his bench, “but you gotta be willing to play that many guys and trust them,” he says. “I tell kids if you come play for me, you’re going to play for me, not sit on the bench.” This season has taken that idea to another level.

Chad Baker-Mazara , a junior-college transfer who was at San Diego State before that, has scored in double figures eight times this season, including 19 against LSU and 16 at Arkansas — but senior Chris Moore , averaging 2.8 points, has started every game over him. Keeping 10 starter-level players happy in a timeshare might be a precarious proposition if it weren’t already baked into the program’s DNA.

“Trust me, they’re hearing it,” Pearl says. “Some of their families, some of the parents, don’t really understand. They don’t have to. They’ve just got to trust me and trust their sons.”

That’s why he has such a soft spot for these Tigers. An involuntary grin creeps across his face when he talks about them. But he’s also a realist. He knows Auburn lost its only two Quad 1 games so far, an 88-82 thriller against Baylor on a neutral court in November and a 69-64 stunner at Appalachian State. It’s not his fault but it is his problem that Notre Dame , USC and Indiana all stink this season, which diminishes those nonconference victories. The Tigers, therefore, still don’t have a single KenPom top-35 win.

“We’re still untested. We are,” Pearl says. His team also hasn’t been in many close games, “so we don’t have a lot of experience in those situations. But we’re fixin’ to get some.”

Auburn has seven games left against top-40 teams — Alabama home and away, Mississippi State home and away, Kentucky at home, Tennessee and Florida on the road — and it’ll need to make hay in most of those if the Tigers want their NCAA Tournament seed to reflect their gaudy record. It’s why Pearl can’t let up, won’t let his team let up. Since that loss in Boone, N.C., where few power-conference programs would even dare to play, by the way, there’s been no real resistance. So Pearl has to keep manufacturing tension.

He’s built the Auburn program to such a level of success that finding an underdog card to play has been surprisingly difficult lately. Before 2018, the Tigers missed 14 straight NCAA Tournaments and failed to even finish above .500 in 11 of those seasons. They hadn’t produced a 25-win season since Cliff Ellis’ electric 1999 team, had just eight all-time NCAA Tournament appearances before Pearl and never made a Final Four.

But then Auburn won 26 games in 2018, 30 in 2019, 25 in 2020 and 28 in 2022. The Tigers won an SEC regular-season or tournament title in three of those seasons. They made the program’s first Final Four in 2019. Pearl is 159-59 over the last six and a half years, during which time he produced six NBA Draft picks, including four first-rounders and No. 3 overall Jabari Smith . So it was a relatively new experience this fall when there wasn’t much buzz about Pearl’s team.

He hinted that his starless squad was still going to be a very tough out, but he was also happy to let doubts linger. Because you never know when you’ll find yourself in a lifeless gym on a snowy night in January searching for the right button to push to avoid a faceplant and keep this 10-man platoon marching on.

Just before he sends his team out to pummel Vanderbilt in its gym — where Tigers fans outnumbered Commodores — Pearl rattles off his meticulously scrawled game plan like he was speed-reading the unfortunate side effects of a new prescription drug. This is all just a preamble for the pro wrestling promo portion of his pregame remarks.

“Who picked you?” he asks them.

“Anybody?” he says, a little louder.

“Anybody?” he repeats, now shouting it.

“Anybody pick us first, second, third, fourth, fifth?” Pearl screams, increasing his volume with every number. “Anybody?”

“Let’s win this game!” he concludes, at maximum volume, as the players bound up off the bench. “Let’s goooooo!” they howl, storming out of the locker room, on their way to lead for 37 of 40 minutes, by as many as 22 points, and coast to another never-in-doubt victory.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn and Mississippi played 145 times before meeting when both were ranked.

It ended up being a mismatch.

No. 13 Auburn ran away with its 11th straight win Saturday night in an 82-59 rout of the No. 22 Rebels, the longest active streak among Power Five teams.

The Tigers (16-2, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) remained the only SEC team without a league loss after No. 6 Tennessee beat Alabama 91-71 earlier Saturday. They turned the first Top-25 matchup in the 146-game series — and their first game against a ranked team since an opening loss to Baylor — into a rout by halftime.

“(Auburn players) were asking me, ‘Coach, are you impressed yet?” Tigers coach Bruce Pearl said. “I really haven’t been. Part of it is we just haven’t played that many ranked teams. But Ole Miss comes in ranked, and they’re a good team that are really well coached.

“To play that well and control the game like we did was impressive.”

Jaylin Williams and Johni Broome both had 13 points for Auburn. Williams made 5 of 7 shots and the Tigers led by as many as 35. Dylan Cardwell matched his career high with 12 points.

The 6-foot-10 Broome even banked in a 3-pointer midway through the second half, shrugging as he headed back to the other end.

The Rebels (15-3, 2-3) had a season-low in points. Their top four scorers, including Matthew Murrell and former Auburn player Allen Flanigan, all struggled.

“We realized if we wanted to win that game, it starts with those four first,” Cardwell said.

Booed whenever he touched the ball, Flanigan led Ole Miss with 10 points in his return to a school where he spent four seasons and got a degree before transferring. He was scoreless for the opening 17 minutes, missing his first four shots. The top four scorers this season were a combined 12-of-34 shooting.

Murrell finished with eight points, nine below his season average. No. 3 scorer Jaylen Murray had eight points and Jaemyn Brakefield scored seven.

“I don’t think their defense gets enough attention,” Ole Miss coach Chris Beard said. “They’re really hard to score against.

“We came to Ole Miss with a lot of objectives and that’s to play meaningful games in March. And to get there, you’ve got to play some meaningful games in January and February.”

Beard said nerves weren’t an issue for Flanigan, whose father Wes is a former Auburn player and assistant coach who joined the Ole Miss staff.

“The Flanigan family is a lot of things, and nervous isn’t one of them,” Beard said. “Allen Flanigan was not nervous tonight.”

Auburn took its biggest lead of the first half on Chad Baker-Mazara’s jumper with 11 seconds left to go up 46-27. The Tigers pushed it to 31 in the second half with a 14-0 run.

No Auburn player played more than 22 minutes in the game and Tigers reserves blocked three shots in the final five seconds.

BIG PICTURE

Ole Miss: Went 0-2 this week after re-entering the Top 25. Its previous season scoring low was 64 points in a loss to Tennessee.

Auburn: Has won nine of its last 10 home games against ranked teams and is 7-1 in Top 25 matchups at Neville Arena, which opened in 2010. The Tigers are averaging a 22-point margin during the winning streak.

Auburn vs. alabama: stream, injury report, broadcast info for wednesday's game in tuscaloosa, share this article.

The No. 6 Auburn Tigers face Alabama on Wednesday at Coleman Coliseum in Tuscaloosa, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

Auburn has won 11 consecutive games, all by double-digits, and is the lone unbeaten team in the SEC through five games. However, there is one goal that the Tigers have not accomplished to this point in the 2023-24 season, and that is earning a quad 1 win.

Auburn is currently 0-2 in quad 1 opportunities, losing to No. 14 Baylor in the season opener and dropping a home contest to Appalachian State in December. This week will provide two opportunities to cross off the goal, starting Wednesday in Tuscaloosa.

Head coach Bruce Pearl understands that games such as the upcoming tilt with rival Alabama will reveal his team’s true character .

“Adversity can build character, but it will reveal it. We’ll have some character revealed. When that happens, you have to rely on that. Most of it, we’ve had some timeouts when we’re barking at each other and yelling at each other, it’s about being competitive and the desire to win. Absolutely, everybody on this team has accepted less in order for us to achieve more.”

Below, you will find key information ahead of Wednesday’s game between Auburn and Alabama including a broadcast guide, injury report, and projected starting lineups.

Auburn basketball forward Johni Broome’s knee is ‘fine’ after Vanderbilt injury

A uburn leading scorer Johni Broome’s knee is “fine” after picking up an injury late in Wednesday’s 80-65 win against Vanderbilt, head coach Bruce Pearl said during Auburn’s Tiger Talk radio show on Thursday night.

Pearl said that Broome “banged knees” with another player, but practiced fully with the team on Thursday. During his post-game press conference Wednesday, Pearl said he would get word on Broome’s status Thursday. The word has been good.

He exited the game with the injury with just over two minutes to play in the second half.

Broome should be good to go for Auburn’s game Saturday night at home against Ole Miss. The first-team All-SEC preseason pick has been Auburn’s leading scorer this season averaging just over 15 points per game.
