Denson scores 13 in return to eligibility as Auburn routs Grambling State 92-42

Chris Denson scored 13 points in his first appearance this season as Auburn defeated Grambling State 92-42 Tuesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Auburn (3-5) won for only the second time in seven games as Denson provided Frankie Sullivan, the leading scorer in the Southeastern Conference, some much-needed support.

A junior guard, Denson missed the first seven games because he was academically ineligible. Last season, he averaged 8.7 points per game. Denson had seven by halftime against Grambling State.

Sullivan, who came in averaging 19.7 points per game, had 10 points, five assists, four rebounds and three steals. Noel Johnson and Jordan Price added 14 points apiece off the bench and Rob Chubb had 10 points.

Grambling State (0-7), which has lost all of its games on the road, was led by guard Derron Hobbs' 11 points. Leading scorer Terry Rose was held to eight points, half his average.
