AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn coach Tony Barbee calls Kenny Gabriel the Tigers' "stat sheet stuffer."
The versatile Gabriel is known for high-flying dunks and is tied for second in the Southeastern Conference in blocked shots. He's also No. 2 on the team in 3-pointers and steals.
He'll play his final home game for Auburn (14-15, 4-11 Southeastern Conference) on Saturday against LSU.
The 6-foot-8, 209-pound Gabriel has been the top player for struggling Auburn this season, mainly because he plays so many roles.
He posted Auburn's first triple double against Bethune-Cookman on Jan. 2.
Teammate Rob Chubb says Gabriel's 3-pointers and dunks are often momentum-shifters that get the crowd and the team going. Chubb says Gabriel "can jump out of the gym."
