It wasn’t the prettiest 20 minutes of basketball for Auburn against Clemson in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, as the Tigers headed into the locker room down 43-19.
Charles Barkley, the Auburn alum and analyst for CBS Sports during the tournament, had some Auburn-themed balloons floating behind him on set prior to the game. His colleague Kenny Smith was sure to let Barkley know what chances his Tigers had of making the Sweet 16.

Let’s not give Smith too much grief. He was probably angry from North Carolina, his alma mater, losing earlier to Texas A&M.
