Jefferson and Auburn put on a heavyweight bout at the Rumble

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The fifth annual Rumble in the Rock taking place at Rock Valley College was capped with a co-main event that showcased Jefferson and Auburn.

Both the J-Hawks and Knights are jockeying for position atop the NIC-10.

With time running out in the 3rd, Quilin Dixon knocks down the pull up jumper to tie the game at 32.

Myquion Garrett knocks down the corner three to give Jefferson a one-point lead.

But Auburn would not go away. Jamus Neal finds Dimaggio Aldridge for the spot up triple to put the Knights back on top by one.

Then, with a minute and a half to go in the game, Demonde Barmore gets the runner to drop to give Auburn a three-point advantage.

Jefferson would get one last chance. However, Jaquavion Thomas' three is just off the mark and Auburn escapes with the 50-46 victory.
