NCAA tournament preview: No. 4 Auburn

NCAA tournament preview: No. 4 Auburn

During the NCAA Selection Show on TBS Sunday, Greg Gumbel revealed that Auburn had earned the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region.

The Aggies clinched the NCAA Tournament berth, their 21st in program history, with a 72-58 win over Grand Canyon in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nev. "I think we're playing pretty good basketball". The win against IL in the United Center; in Hawaii against the likes of Miami, Davidson, and USC.

The victor of the NMSU-Clemson game will face the victor of No. 4 Auburn and No. 13 College of Charleston in the second round on Sunday. "They can no longer say that the team in the SEC that hasn't been to the NCAA Tournament the longest is Auburn". Miami is a No. 6 seed in the tournament.

"I honestly wanted to go there over Boise, so I'm much more happy about this place", DeVoe said. "We are going to get up and get ready for them".

Auburn was one of a record eight SEC teams to make the field, along with Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, Texas A&M, regular-season co-champion Tennessee and conference tournament champion Kentucky.

The 12 seed is the highest NMSU has received since 2010 when it was also a 12 seed.

The win leaves Arsenal 10 points off Champions League qualification in sixth place in the standings, while Watford stay in 10th. Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson believes Bournemouth could pay the price for Tottenham's Champions League exit mid-week.

The Clemson Tigers (23-9, 11-7) had more to celebrate Sunday, officially earning a seat at the table in the 2018 NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament.

The first Clemson Tiger from the state of Texas, junior Elijah Thomas, is almost averaging a double-double with 10.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Grantham tore his ACL in a victory against Notre Dame in January. The Cougars are averaging 7.7 three-pointers per game on 36.4% shooting from beyond the arc.

"We're really excited", Harris said. No. 10 Oklahoma. Guard play is the key to any tournament and the Sooners have it. Trae Young is not a one-man team, but he can set the table for others. "I know all of us are comfortable where we are and the matchups that we have that we'll be able to advance".

The only NCAA win for the Tigers during the past two decades came when they played in the First Four in Dayton in 2011 and defeated UAB.

Coach Brownell has taken three different programs to the NCAA Tournament.

After tossing in a baby hook with 8:25 to go, Salt grabbed an offensive rebound, scored on a turnaround bank shot in the post and followed with another bucket inside at the five-minute mark.
