Harper's 3 helps cold-shooting Tigers beat Charleston 62-58

Jared Harper made a clutch 3-pointer with 1:17 to go -- his only basket of the game -- and Auburn held off No. 13 seed College of Charleston 62-58 in a Midwest Region thriller to avoid becoming the second No. 4 seed upset at Viejas Arena on Friday.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Auburn survived a dismal 5-of-24 shooting effort from beyond the arc to beat Charleston 62-58 and advance to the second round. The Cougars had their chances, but shot just 3-of-7 from the foul line in the game's last two minutes. It's the Tigers' first NCAA tournament win since 2003.

Auburn coach Bruce Pearl on the FBI and internal investigations: "I'm not going to comment specifically about that, but I am confident when everything is said and done, that I will still be coaching at Auburn."
