Auburn University: The Basketball School

In the past two seasons, this Auburn Tiger team has proven they can win games in the SEC under Bruce Pearl. Last year, they were a four seed in the tournament. This year, a five seed. This year they’ve proven that they live and die by the three point line. They are ranked first in three pointers made and second in three pointers attempted. They’ve also ranked first in steals per game. I believe that they can win against this very smart Virginia basketball team. The Virginia team has had trouble when they are playing fast pace, three point hitting teams. They’ve clearly not played a lot of those teams in the ACC. Guards, Bryce Brown and Jared Harper, have played really well in the tournament and have definitely raised their draft stocks. I think they can succeed in the NBA. Since the one-and-done rule, there hasn’t been any real good seniors to make it in the league. I think Bruce Pearl has turned this team around and can continue to succeed in the tough SEC.
