Pearl gets 600th win with Auburn's victory in season finale

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Allen Flanigan scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half and Auburn pulled away late to beat Mississippi State 78-71 on Saturday and give Bruce Pearl his 600th coaching victory in the Tigers' season finale.

With no seniors and just two upperclassmen on the roster, Auburn didn't stage a Senior Day, and the Tigers (13-14, 7-11 Southeastern Conference) announced in November that they were self-imposing a postseason ban as a result of a long-running NCAA investigation. But they found reason to celebrate after the win over the Bulldogs as Pearl did a little dance at center court, surrounded by his players.

Pearl is the 63rd coach in Division I history and the 21st active coach to reach 600 wins. Pearl's record over 26 years of coaching is 600-237. This is his seventh season at Auburn.
