The No. 9 Auburn Tigers were in control for the first half against the No. 1 Houston Cougars. They were unable to hold onto their momentum during the second half as they went ice-cold offensively and fell 81-64 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
The loss ended Auburn’s season with a record of 21-13.
The Tigers scored just 23 second-half points and went 4-of-24 from the field as they watched their 41-31 halftime lead evaporate. Their struggles included the free throw line, where they went 19-of-36 and failed to take advantage of Houston’s committing 25 fouls.
Auburn fans took to Twitter to react to both the loss and the season overall, here are the top reactions.
Texting all my exes tonight:
“Hey, are you an Auburn free throw? Because I’ve been missing you.”

pretty brutal season in many ways but still a lot of fun per usual under BP. won a lot of fun matchups but just couldn’t overcome one more tough one
cant call it a success of a season but it wasn’t a failure either. can’t hate that too much in a kinda down year

Considering the roster, that was a hell of a season for Auburn basketball. With the classes coming in, watch out for the Tigers in 2024 and 2025.

I’ll take “bad Auburn basketball” being a team that goes 21-13 while making and winning a game in the tourney. Frustrating season, but expectations have vastly changed.
