Auburn-Clemson preview

  • Auburn won’t change its offensive style, even after missing the vast majority of its shots against College of Charleston. Clemson’s 3-point defense ranks 228th nationally, so this is a key area where the Tigers can take advantage.
  • A wire-to-wire champion in the SEC during the regular season, Auburn is one of just three conference teams still left in the tournament. Each of the last three wire-to-wire SEC champions have at least reached the Elite Eight.
  • Auburn basketball survived and advanced past the College of Charleston on Friday with a huge defensive effort. While the Tigers know they must play better on offense in the second round, they know  the key to winning in March is making stops.
  • Freshman point guard  Davion Mitchell proved he could be reliable in the NCAA Tournament on Friday, playing 20 minutes in relief of foul-troubled starter Jared Harper. Auburn is 12-0 this season when Mitchell plays at least 20 minutes off the bench.
  • Keep an eye on the end of Auburn’s bench on Sunday night for injured center Anfernee McLemore. The Georgia native has been instrumental in boosting the Tigers’ morale during their late-season slide and quick turnaround here in San Diego.  Check out what he had to say following the first round.
