The Auburn Tigers and Miami Hurricanes face off on Sunday in the Round of 32 college basketball showdown at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. 

Auburn comes into this game with a 28-5 record overall and they have won three of their last four games. In the last game against Jacksonville State on Friday the offense had another strong game scoring 80 points and that led to the 19 point victory. Auburn likes to play a fast pace, but at times the defense is often overlooked and they are going to need to put a whole lot of pressure in this game. As a team, Auburn is averaging 78.7 points while their defense is giving up 67 points per game. The best player this season for Auburn has been Jabari Smith who is averaging 17.1 points while shooting 43.7 percent from the field and 42.8 percent from behind the three point line. There are four different players that are averaging at least 11.7 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Hurricanes who sit with a 24-10 record overall and they have won four of their last five games. On Friday, Miami faced off with USC and although they struggled a bit in the second half, they held on to win by two points. Miami’s defense struggled in the second half giving up 46 points and they need to improve on that side of the ball. Miami is averaging 74.8 points while their defense is giving up 71 points per game. Kameron McGusty has been the top player for Miami averaging 17.6 points while shooting 48 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from behind the three point line. In this game if Mami wants to come away with a victory the defense is going to need to be good.

The way the Miami defense performed in the second half against USC is a big concern for me, and I think their struggles will happen against Auburn in this game. I do think Miami’s offense will be strong though, and this game is going to end up being a shootout. Back the over to cash.
