#19 Auburn vs Syracuse Game Preview and Open Thread

Before the Auburn Tigers won the 2018 SEC Regular Season Championship and played in the NCAA Tournament that year, Auburn had been missing in the NCAA Tournament since 2003. The team they were eliminated by: the Syracuse Orange in the Sweet 16.

So fast forward 18 years later and while few on this roster will have any remembrance of that game, it’s finally time for a little revenge on the Cuse.

That 79-78 Sweet 16 win for Syracuse was on their way to a National Championship that featured a freshmen who became the 3rd pick in the 2003 NBA Draft and has had himself quite the career.
