Moment of silence taken at Alabama-Auburn basketball game Tuesday night


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — Coleman Coliseum took a moment of silence before tipoff in the Alabama-Auburn basketball game to honor the victims of the Lee County tornadoes Sunday, March 3. 

Although the rivalry runs deep between the SEC opponents, this is not the first time they have come together to honor those in need. 

In 2011, many in the Auburn community helped those who were devastated by the April 27 tornado outbreak in Tuscaloosa.
