Gonzaga falls, Auburn now has longest home winning streak in college basketball

Neville Arena became much more valuable overnight.

Auburn Basketball has won 28 straight games inside its home stadium, which was the second-longest streak in the nation behind Gonzaga, who had won 76 straight games inside the McCarthy Athletic Center. That changed Thursday night when Loyola Marymount defeated the Bulldogs, 68-67 on a Cam Shelton jumper with 12 seconds remaining. The loss broke the historic streak, and now Gonzaga will have to start a new one in the place nicknamed “The Kennel.”

With the Gonzaga loss, the Tigers now have the longest winning streak in the nation. The streak began during the 2020-21 season when Auburn defeated Tennessee, 77-72 on February 27, 2021. Auburn would close out the season with two straight home wins before going to a perfect 16-0 record in 2021-22. .

Auburn has posted several key victories during this current streak, including victories over Kentucky, Oklahoma, Murray State, Alabama, and Arkansas. The Tigers are currently 10-0 at home this season and will have a chance to continue their winning streak next Wednesday, January 25 against Texas A&M.
