Attack the Aggies! (Auburn vs. New Mexico State Open Thread)

By on March 21st, 2019 in Basketball 8 Comments »

Tigers must be on upset alert against this team
(Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports)

     War Eagle, everybody! Today marks Auburn’s first game in the 2019 NCAA basketball tournament. Auburn drew a 5 seed in the Midwest bracket, and will face the New Mexico State Aggies in Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. This arena is the home of the Utah Jazz NBA franchise, and NBA players regularly complain about the lack of air in this venue as it is located more than 4200 feet above sea level.

     I know that the naysayers will laugh about an apparent Auburn issue playing at altitude and will mention that New Mexico State has to play in it, too. Folks, the Aggie home court is located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and it is 4,300 plus feet above sea level. These guys practice and play in that environment nearly every day. It’s a huge advantage. Also, Salt Lake city is a long way from Alabama. I would point out that it’s also a really difficult drive from Las Cruses through a lot of switchback Rocky Mountain roads. The Aggie home is in south central New Mexico, they have to drive from there through the Four Corners area just to get to Utah, and Salt Lake is in the northern end of the state. This whole area is very rugged and beautiful. I’ve only seen it out of airplane windows.

     Auburn won the SEC tournament due to depth, having to play 4 games in 4 days. Depth won’t save Auburn against New Mexico State. Those guys regularly play 13 men. The real hope is that the Aggies do not regularly play against players that have the size and speed Auburn’s guys do. Auburn was quicker than every SEC team it faced in Nashville in the SECt tournament, and I’m hoping that New Mexico State will have a hard time adapting as well.

     The game tips off at 12:30 PM, Central Daylight Time, in Salt Lake City, Utah. It will be televised on the TNT network. That’s channel 781 if you have a Charter/Spectrum box. Not sure about other TV providers. If you have to stream it, your best bet is March Madness Live. I will be here, running an open thread. This will not be a strict play-by-play as there is no way I can type as fast as Auburn runs the offense! I will more be exclaiming on big plays, relating the score, and doing color commentary. War Eagle, and let’s smash those Aggies!

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20194:59 pm

…..I got to scope out a little of Kansas and Northeastern. Kansas doesn’t look like a big team, nor particularly fast. Neither team was shooting well, but Kansas was at least making their layups.

PortCouncil1 PortCouncil1 March 21, 20194:55 pm

War Eagle

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:56 pm

…..War Eagle! Auburn moves on to the field of 32, Saturday.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:56 pm

…..And now we await a game time for Saturday. Hopefully an afternoon or evening game, for my sake.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:54 pm

…..Foul trouble, turnovers at the end. not great shooting, not sure how we held on, really.

PortCouncil1 PortCouncil1 March 21, 20193:53 pm

That was painful. Going to have to take better care of the ball and grab some more rebounds next game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:52 pm

…..Auburn survives, because the Aggies shot blanks in the final seconds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:52 pm

…..Inbounds to wide open three from Brown, air-ball! Auburn wins!

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:51 pm

…..Aggies will inbound, probably right at the basketball rim.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:51 pm

…..Reviewing who touched the ball last. I can’t see them reversing that one, on replay.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:50 pm

….Nailbiter. 78-77 Auburn, 1.1 seconds left.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:50 pm

….No good! And they foul, no call, out of bounds on Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:49 pm

……Second shot is good. One point game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:48 pm

…..First is no good!

PortCouncil1 PortCouncil1 March 21, 20193:48 pm

We’ve done everything I can think of the last few minutes to lose this game. Let’s see if it works.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:48 pm

…..Terrell Brown can win it for the Aggies, as Auburn has really come apart down the stretch.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:47 pm

…….Bryce Brown fouls, 1.1 seconds left. They put Brown on the line, 80 percent free throw shooter, and he’ll get three for the win.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:47 pm

…..Second shot. He rolls it in! 78-76.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:46 pm

…..Doughty at the line. Off the front of the rim, no good.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:46 pm

…..Purifoy to inbound. To Doughty, fouled with only a fraction of a second ran off the clock.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:45 pm

…..That’s it for the Aggies. One Auburn timeout remains.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:44 pm

Timeout Aggies, 77-76.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:44 pm

…… Pressing, They bury a 3 with 6 seconds left. Why were we pressing, and not defending the three point shot?

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:43 pm

….Can make it a 4 point game. DOES!

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:43 pm

…..McCormick, good!

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:42 pm

…..Harris shoots it up, and good. Second shot, missed! McCormick with the rebound, and is fouled with 12 seconds left. 75-73 TIgers.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:41 pm

….Harper has fouled out.

…..Auburn calls time, one left for each team.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:38 pm

…..Aggie ball, with 41 seconds left. They trail by 4.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:38 pm

….Officials agree.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:38 pm

….They will review, but I think Harper touched it last.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:37 pm

…..Okeke, to Harper, fumbled out of bounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:37 pm

…..McCants will shoot two. Missed the first! Second… good. 73-69.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:37 pm

…..Purifoy in for Spencer.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:36 pm

…..Here’s Lob to McCants, fouled by Spencer. And he’s out of the game.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:35 pm

…..Deflected back out by Doughty on the inbounds.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:35 pm

…..Bounced in to Harper, falls down, turnover.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:34 pm

…..This ball NEEDS to be thrown in to Harper or Doughty, not Spencer. Needs to be a shooter, because they will foul.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:34 pm

…..Laid in easily by Harris, and they call time with 49 seconds left. 73-68, Auburn.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:33 pm

…..Spencer with a one and one. 56 seconds left. Missed the front end.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:31 pm

…..Harper shoves a defender down, and it is a turnover. Plus, that’s Harper’s fourth.

Acid Reign Acid Reign March 21, 20193:31 pm

    WAR EAGLE, EVERYBODY !!!
    Acid Reign, I hope you were able to watch the Kansas game.
    It was a BEAUTY to behold. A true joy to watch.

  2. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    …..I did not. Duty called. However, I’ve been on YouTube and watched plenty of highlights! I scouted Kansas a bit, and they looked kinda slow, but powerful inside. I was NOT expecting Auburn would blow them out of the water like they did!

    Hoping your cards play right.
    Auburn vs. UNC on 29 March at 7:29
