I can't believe it's the time of year I would normally be writing to you about spring football practice, or Bob would be writing about our women's softball team.
For the second year in a row we are talking about basketball. NCAA March Madness, and our Auburn Tigers baby! The 2019 SEC Tournament Champions. That has a nice ring to it.
To think, it all started like this:
On that fateful day, March 18th 2014 Bruce Pearl jumped into a mosh pit of Auburn fans. Five years later, almost to the day, he jumps into a mosh pit at Toomer's Corner celebrating winning the championship.
The Tigers made a run through the SEC Tournament making history along the way. Bryce Brown was named MVP, and why not. Setting the record for three point shots with 18.
Danjel Purifoy led from the bench with 10 points in just 10 minutes of playing time. Making clutch 3 pointers, and playing great defense.
Auburn will face New Mexico State Thursday at 12:30 pm Central time.
