The Auburn Tigers battle the Virginia Cavaliers in a Final 4 matchup in Saturday college basketball.

The Tigers were outshot 44.3%-40% and were 18-24 at the charity stripe where Kentucky went 12-21 which cost the Wildcats a win.
Jared Harper topped Auburn with 26 points, three yanks, four assists and two blocks followed by Bryce Brown who netted another 24 points.
The Tigers received eight points, three pulls and five helpers from Anfernee Hardaway while Austin Wiley chipped in with another seven points.
The Virginia Cavaliers overcame a 42 point explosion by Carsen Edwards to upend the Purdue Boilermakers 80-75 in overtime in an Elite 8 battle.
Kyle Guy kept the Cavaliers afloat with 25 points and ten rebounds while Ty Jerome netted 24 points with five boards and seven helpers.
Mamadi Diakite gave Virginia 14 points, seven pulls and four blocks followed by De’Andre Hunter who contributed ten points and five boards.
Auburn Tigers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win and are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games andare 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win.
Virginia Cavaliers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games and are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games following a ATS win and are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games and are 45-20-1 ATS in their last 66 games overall.
The Cavaliers really haven’t shown that killer instinct we have seen from this team throughout the year even though that might not sound right given their Final 4 berth. Auburn is without Okeke but I think their offense will stay hot and I’ll take the points…
