Homegrown Tigers off to perfect 10-0 start
How many women's hoops watchers expected this from a formerly itinerant coach? That she'd find a place to settle down -- in part by convincing others not to wander?
Nell Fortner's Auburn team is 10-0 and ranked 10th nationally, the Tigers' first appearance in the top 10 since 2000. Auburn's top five scorers -- led by senior standout DeWanna Bonner -- all are from Alabama. Fortner kept them "home."
And Auburn, where she is in her fifth season, has become her home.
