Chris "The Bear" Fallica picked Auburn.
"I like Auburn in the game," Fallica said. "The fact that they're still getting a little disrespected in the rankings — as crazy as that seems to be. ... Home court does matter a lot. I think the people are so excited to be in these buildings at full capacity, and the players are excited to have that energy. ... I love this Auburn team. I love the way they go up and down the floor. I love the way they play. Knowing (Auburn head coach) Bruce Pearl like I have for a while now, I'm a big fan of his and happy to see the success he has."
