FOX's Andy Katz picks Auburn vs. UConn basketball
Andy Katz picked UConn.
"(Auburn forward) Jabari Smith has been phenomenal here the first week of the season," Katz said. "I saw UConn in person, and (UConn forward) Adama Sanogo, who somehow was not on either first- or second-team preseason Big East, he is going to be a problem for everybody, including Jabari Smith. But what I loved about UConn is they've taken on (UConn head coach Dan) Hurley's personality defensively. And (UConn guard) R.J. Cole ... I think he is going to be a problem for Auburn's guards. I like the toughness of UConn's guards better than Auburn's at this point in the season. I think UConn wins."
