There is a line in a song that goes - "Sweet dreams are made of these". My thoughts went to this song when thinking of the start Auburn Men's basketball is off to. Of course we are in heady territory for a "football school" when our basketball team starts league play at 2-0.
While the conference wins are a welcome sight, it will take many more for the team to achieve its goal of going dancing in the post season. A month ago it seemed nearly impossible. Then without warning, things started to click. A very close call with the 12th ranked team in the country, and victory over the defending ACC Champs gave us some hope and evidence of elevated play on the court.
Then the start of SEC play against an LSU team picked to finish 11th in the league, and we the fans started thinking that maybe we are getting better. But road woes have doomed such hopes in the past. This Auburn team however did not disappoint on its first road trip to conference play beating South Carolina.
Future contests will become more difficult as Auburn's schedule does not get easier. If this team can manage to keep getting better, and keep winning, maybe we can realize our dreams of post season play. After all "Sweet dreams are made of these".....
