Auburn fans excited about NCAA Tournament win

"I'm proud of these kids and what they accomplished this year".

With the win, the Tigers will head to Sweet 16 in more than a couple of decades.

Clemson dominated Auburn 84-53 in San Diego, Ca. on Sunday night to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1997.

DeVoe, a senior from Orlando, made all three of his shots in the first half, and then poured it on in the second by scoring 14.

Brad Brownell's team will now move on to play top-seeded Kansas on Friday in Omaha.

It was the Cougars' first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999. Clemson found its way past New Mexico State, picking up a 79-68 victory. He's not the best player, but he's the most important player. "I just don't think there is a difference anymore".

The Auburn community is rallying behind their Tigers, and say that this win is only the beginning.

Still, Auburn managed to lead 25-18 with under two minutes to play, before a 7-0 Charleston run tied the game up at 25-25 going into the intermission.

No, the end of Auburn's season was drawn out.

The Tigers (26-7) overcame a disgusting shooting performance (35.6%) to win in their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2003.

"After the foul the ref pointed at me to go to the line, so I stepped up and went to the line".

Clemson shot 47.5 percent from the field and held a 50-32 rebounding advantage. Auburn may have won the turnover battle with seven forced TOs, but that 26 percent shooting night couldn't back up their swings in momentum. Clemson outscored Auburn 57-16 over the next 19 minutes. The inexperience of Auburn was more evident in their game than that of Clemson in their victory, but there is no telling how these two teams will match up. Assistant coach Chuck Person was indicted as part of a federal investigation that cost two of Auburn's best players their eligibility.

Mitchell helped eliminate New Mexico State by scoring six points on the same trip down the floor early in the second half. Coach Brownell said. "He's a big strong guy, has range, and a quick trigger". They were a load. "All I can really honestly remember is they had a few stretches where they came down and knocked down shots and we had a few stretches where we came down and took kind of bad shots at times and that led to easy fast breaks for them".

The victor will extend what already has been an extraordinary season. Clemson, meanwhile, created higher-caliber looks and had little trouble converting them into points.

The SEC's Tigers weren't supposed to be in this position in the first place. "These guys have really done an unbelievable job all year of buying into what we're trying to do".

"It doesn't matter in these games if you go in as a coach and give them the Knute Rockne speech and tell them all that". "Charleston played a fantastic game".
