A road trip for the ages.
Prior to the start of this trip coach Bruce Pearl said the next two games would be a good barometer, a gauge if you will, as to just how far this team has come. Or, how far it has yet to go.
Game one saw the Tigers take on a 2016 Final Four team in Oklahoma.
The victory came on another fantastic finish. The celebration was to be short lived because Auburn had to travel to UConn and be ready to play in just two days. The Huskies have claimed no less than Four National Championships.
Coach Pearl's post game comments were very joyful as you might expect. Pearl also reminded the media that this team won two games on the road while not playing a very good brand of basketball.
I can't think of a better Holiday gift than knowing Auburn basketball is good again. Just how good is to be determined.
