Tigers narrowly avoid upset

Auburn held on for a 78-77 victory over New Mexico State Thursday afternoon in the first round of the NCAA Tournament as the Aggies' shot at the buzzer was well off the mark. The Tigers (27-9) were outscored 48-46 in the second half, but managed to hang on. Auburn shot 26-of-57 from the field, 12-of-31 from 3-point range plus 14-of-21 at the free throw line. Jared Harper paced the Tigers with 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting including 4-of-8 from 3-point distance and 1-of-3 at the free throw line. He also dished out four assists. J'von McCormick accounted for 16 points, two rebounds and two steals off the bench. Chuma Okeke had 13 points, five boards and three steals. Bryce Brown added 12 points, five assists, three rebounds and two steals.

Jayhawks dominate Huskies

Kansas earned a convincing 87-53 victory Thursday against Northeastern to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Jayhawks (26-9) outscored the Huskies 50-28 in the second half after leading by 12 at halftime. Dedric Lawson paced Kansas with 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting including 3-of-5 from 3-point range plus 4-of-4 at the free throw line. He also ripped down 11 rebounds. Devon Dotson tallied 18 points, four boards, two assists and two steals. Ochai Abgaji tallied 13 points and five caroms. K.J. Lawson added 13 points, two rebounds and two dimes off the bench. The Jayhawks shot 34-of-61 from the floor, 8-of-22 from 3-point land plus 11-of-12 at the charity stripe.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Auburn

The Tigers are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 Saturday games. Auburn is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games overall.

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Kansas is 6-2 ATS in its last eight neutral site games.

Prediction:

Kansas has had an uneven season for Kansas standards, but has played pretty well lately aside from the Big 12 Tournament championship game on tired legs. The Jayhawks dominated a fairly decent Northeastern team in their tournament opener and I think oddsmakers plus bettors are undervaluing them right now. Take advantage of Kansas as underdogs here against an Auburn team that was one shot away from being stunned in the first round.
