Auburn basketball a 4 seed in first NCAA tournament appearance since 2003

Clemson to play New Mexico St. in first round of NCAA tourney

Clemson (23-9) found out Sunday evening that it will face New Mexico State (28-5) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday in San Diego.

"This is a complete group". "They're relentless the way they play, and that's the way we have to play to be good".

"I'm so happy for coach and the fans and the team", NMSU guard Zach Lofton said. Anytime we've played on the big stage, we've played really well.

"He's just all heart, and he'll do whatever you ask", Bennett said.

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. I think a lot of New Mexicans can find their way to San Diego pretty easy. The Cougars have a rebound margin of -0.7 and a turnover margin of 2.2. The Tigers are averaging 9.8 three-pointers per game on 36.6% shooting from beyond the arc.

"I got a guarantee for you, Auburn will be playing the Big Dance next year - guaranteed", Barkley said before the first-round game between MI and Oklahoma State last year.

Like NMSU, Clemson is a good defensive team, ranking 29th in the country in points allowed at 65.8 points per game.

Clemson was picked in the preseason to finish 13th in the ACC.

Overall top seeds for the tournament are Virginia, Villanova, Kansas and Xavier, with Villanova and Xavier both representing the Big East Conference as No. 1 seeds.

The Auburn Tigers shared the SEC regular-season title then made a one-game exit in the SEC tournament. They are a team that can definitely give the Tigers fits.

That game came three days after senior forward Donte Grantham, who averaged 14 points, went down with a season-ending knee injury against Notre Dame. "But I think Michigan State is going to win that region".

"With everything they accomplished this year, this is the greatest season in Auburn basketball history", Barkley said. That's all I got.

College of Charleston (24-7) earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament since 1999 by winning the Colonial Athletic Association Championship, 83-76, over Northeastern this past Tuesday. Just one day, one game at a time.
