Auburn vs. Florida - 3/16/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

LSU's Will Wade, caught on tape breaking NCAA rules, asks to return Smart returns to LSU lineup for SEC tourney loss
Cassandra Castillo | 17 March, 2019, 09:25

Johnson passed to fellow freshman Nembhard, who was open at the top of the arc for the victor.

"I was just driving and I see Naz come up to set a charge", Keyontae Johnson said. I'm glad he hit it. "I'm a leader for this team, so if I want to win, I have to make game-winning plays and just lead my team". Will Reese threw the ball deep to Reid, but he couldn't catch it, and the buzzer sounded.

The two teams met only once in the regular season, with Auburn defending its home floor to the tune of a 76-62 win back on February 5. That player is believed to be freshman guard Javonte Smart, who has been cleared to play as an ongoing joint LSU-NCAA inquiry into the situation continues.

A Gator scoring drought doomed Florida and this one was fueled more by turnovers than missed shots.

"Unfortunately, I probably shouldn't have gotten the T, looking back on it", Benford said.

Sure, the Tigers are the SEC regular season conference champions, but they're without their head coach.

"Now, are we an NCAA Tournament team today?" I personally wasn't listening for it.

"We know we have to just buckle down going into the NCAA Tournament", Tremont Waters said.

The Tigers have covered in four straight following a win, but is just 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games. Jalen Hudson drove for a layup with 7.4 seconds to go, then Harper hit one of two free throws with 6.2 seconds left.

Exceptional efforts: Johnson was outstanding with the first double-double for a UF freshman in an SEC Tournament game since Donnell Harvey. he posted a team-high 20 points on 8 of 14 shooting (3 of 5 from three) with 12 rebounds. Then Allen passed out to Nembhard at the top of the key for the winning 3.

Wade sent out a statement today saying as much, and also conveniently failed to address whether or not he was guilty of committing blatant NCAA violations caught on tape by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Chris Silva led SC with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Felipe Haase and Tre Campbell each added 12 points.

The freshman guard was held out of LSU's win over Vanderbilt to close the regular season and didn't learn until about 9:45 a.m. Friday that he could play again.

The Yahoo and ESPN reports detail a 2017 phone conversation between Wade and recently convicted former Adidas consultant Christian Dawkins recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that includes Wade openly speaking about a "strong-ass offer" he made in the recruitment of a player.

"We lost coach Wade, but we're going to stay together, be a family, and hopefully win the whole thing", Smart said. Arkansas led most of the first half, but Florida took a 2-point lead into the break.

Auburn and Florida did their best to put on a good show with lots of shooting, and the Gators putting on a clinic in precision to keep pace with the Tigers' offense. LSU was whistled for 24 fouls, Florida 10. With all the distractions it was hard to predict how the Tigers were going to play.

Florida made 16-of-26 free throws, while LSU didn't attempt one until the second half and finished 7 of 11. "I think we've done enough work to deserve that". "I heard guys [say] when there's an interim coach, you're not getting any calls". Florida needs to win with defense, but I think that will be a challenge against Auburn.

The current trend as of Saturday afternoon is that LSU could be a No. 3 seed.
