Auburn survives College of Charleston behind late 3-pointer by Harper

Auburn survives College of Charleston behind late 3-pointer by Harper

While Mitchell was making a 3-pointer from the top of the key, a foul was called against New Mexico State away from the ball. "That's the thing I've told the guys to try to break it down for them. I'm not going to be shy about that".

"We wanted to get to Sunday to have a chance to be one of 16 teams left with a win on Sunday", Pearl said. As a team, Auburn shot just 35.6 percent overall and made just five of 24 attempts (20.8 percent) from 3-point range. "He got a hand on that and game over".

Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person was indicted as part of a federal investigation that cost two of Auburn's best players their eligibility.

Chelsea star reveals what went wrong against Barcelona
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been named the Most Valuable Player in matches played in the Champions League this week. We defended and played well, hit the crossbar which was unlucky on our side but the individual mistakes cost us.


Auburn shot only 35.6 percent from the floor and was a terrible 15-of-32 from the free-throw line, but mitigated that by forcing 21 turnovers, a season-high by College of Charleston.

Auburn now advances on to play the victor of the Clemson/New Mexico State game.

Nervousness plagued Auburn (26-7) in the estimation of Pearl, who attributed the team's surprisingly poor free-throw shooting - 15 of 32 - to excessive pressure of representing the Southeastern Conference.

Both bids will be evaluated first by a task force and disqualified if they did not meet FIFA's technical criteria. India too had put in an official bid to host the U-20 World Cup but lost out to its European counterpart.


Auburn led the SEC in free-throw percentage this season, but even an errant night at the line still yielded a significant points advantage. The official pointed to Harper, identifying him as the shooter.

Auburn's sophomore point guard picked up two fouls in the first 65 seconds of the game and his third less than two minutes into the second half.

"I think it's huge for the school, huge for the town of Auburn and huge for us", Heron said. "They had a chance to win it at the end". Brown (10 points on 3-for-11 shooting) hit one with 2:06 remaining to put Auburn ahead by one, and after Riller tied it with a free throw, Harper hit the shot that gave his team the lead for good. In 38 minutes, Brantley added to his stat line, 24 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 threes with 4 turnovers. "Bryce Brown didn't shoot the ball very well in the first half".

Russian Federation to expel 23 British diplomats: foreign ministry
In a rare joint statement, the leaders of Britain, France, Germany and the USA on Thursday condemned the attack. Russia's foreign minister said Britain's defense minister "lacks education".


"For Auburn to get to come to San Diego, California, travel as well as we do - this is a real reward", he said.
