The Tigers did win in the regular season, but that was a road game for the Vols and didn't play their game. Florida (18-14) trailed much of the first half but were able to pull ahead in the second half and ultimately roll Arkansas (17-15) to the finish to pick up a key win that may earn the team a 2019 NCAA Tournament bid. After rallying from a 13 point deficit in the second half the Gators had one final possession, and it was Nembhard calling game on a three-point jumper to win 76-73. "The more we win, the more we have both". For years, the kid going three.two.shot clock down. Replays show Brown appeared to grab at Nembhard's left arm, but the guard said he felt he got the ball. It's pretty significant in a league that's as good as this league. LSU is one of the best teams in the country. These two guys have been tremendous to coach thus far in their early careers.

Over on the Auburn side, they're on a great run right now and playing well. It's a good story.

LSU looked like the better team to open up the game as they immediately jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first minute.

For the first time since 2015, @AuburnMBB is headed to the #SECMBB Semifinals! The Tigers continue to get a sizable portion of their offense from 3-point range and have made 69 of them during this six-game winning streak - which accounts for 44.8 percent of its offense in those wins.

Harper was 12 of 14 from the line in the second half.

The two teams met only once in the regular season, with Auburn defending its home floor to the tune of a 76-62 win back on February 5.

Smart scored 13, but it wasn't enough.

Florida: The Gators' 3-point shooting woes, which contributed to their three-game skid to end the regular season, surfaced again.

Naz Reid had a quick response for LSU as his dunk gave his team the lead once again. Florida made the two technical free throws and 1-of-2 for the double-bonus foul to lead 66-63.

But he also pointed out how Saint Mary's upset Gonzaga in the West Coast Conference tournament title game, adding that the Tigers handled the Gaels on a neutral count back in December.

Bryce Brown had 19 points and Samir Doughty added 10 for Auburn.

LSU fell 76-73 to the Florida Gators after dropping at 10-point halftime lead. Nembhard finished with 20 points, one off his season high, as all five Gators starters finished in double figures and accounted for all but four of their points. "I'm a leader for this team, so if I want to win, I have to make game-winning plays and just lead my team".

The fifth-seeded Tigers (24-9) won for the second time in as many days, pulling away for a 73-64 victory in the other afternoon quarterfinal session Friday. Passed it to Andrew and he hit a big shot.

"I knew he was going to hit it", said the Gators' Keyontae Johnson. I just questioned the ref on it. I'm glad he hit it.

Pearl said officials didn't call a foul whether Nembhard was tied up cleanly or had some contact. "I'm happy it went down, for sure". Florida was unable to get closer than eight points for the duration of the half. The senior forward was almost as good in the rematch and helped SC lead for much of the first half before Auburn rallied to forge a 36-all tie at the intermission.

LSU sits at 26-6 with the loss after clinching the SEC regular season title.

No matter who they play, Florida will take the court at 1 p.m. tomorrow in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament.
