Charles Barkley says this is Auburn’s best team ever
By ADAM ZAGORIANEW YORK — Charles Barkley says this is Auburn’s best basketball team ever, and he hopes the Tigers make a deep run in March.
“It’s amazing for me because we started out picked 11th [in the SEC] and then we lost our two best players,” Barkley, Auburn’s most famous basketball product, said Tuesday at a CBS/Turner brunch in advance of the NCAA Tournament. “They haven’t played all year. And then for them to win the [regular-season title], it’s the greatest season in Auburn’s history, in my opinion.”
