Things to Look Out For With Auburn:

  1. Jerome Robinson Needs To Score: The one thing that has remained constant throughout the season is that the Eagles live and die with Jerome Robinson’s offense. If Robinson finds his stroke, the Eagles will be solid. If not, the Eagles will run into trouble.
  2. Quick Tempo: Auburn plays an uptempo game, the 20th quickest tempo in the country.
  3. Not-So-Friendly-Confines: Since the Eagles lost to North Carolina in the 2015 ACC tournament, the Eagles have won away from Conte Forum once (Dec. 22 vs. Fordham @ Barclays Center).
