Auburn starts a 6-7, 260-pound point guard

  Cinmeon Bowers shows off his ball-handling skills against Alabama.

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.

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.
