Auburn basketball: Bruce Pearl starts 6-7, 260-pound Cinmeon Bowers at point guard
A 6-7, 260-pound basketball player started a game at point guard today, and his name is not LeBron James.
Auburn announced before its clash against Georgia that Cinmeon Bowers, typically a power forward for the Tigers, would start Saturday’s game against the Bulldogs running the point.
According to Auburn, Cinmeon Bowers will start at point guard this afternoon against Georgia. That is not a typo.— Tom Green (@AUBlog) February 6, 2016

Bowers is averaging 10.9 points and 9.0 rebounds per game this season. He has tallied 28 assists on the year. Keep an eye on Auburn and Georgia this evening, because this should be a sight to see.
