MINNEAPOLIS — Basketball analyst Jeff Goodman, who worked with Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl for a few years, says it’s hard to believe what the Tigers have done in March.

“Ridiculous,” Goodman said about Auburn’s run.  “I honestly can’t believe Bruce Pearl and Auburn are here.”

Goodman says it’s critical for Auburn to get up on Virginia early and make them “uncomfortable.”
