NMSU fell to Auburn 78-77 in the NCAA Tournament Thursday afternoon.

The Tigers rode an eight-game winning streak late in the season that included the school’s first SEC tournament championship since 1985.

The Aggies come into the game riding a winning streak of their own. They’ve won 19 games in a row, claiming both the WAC regular-season and conference tournament titles along the way.

Senior guard Bryce Brown averages a team-high 15.8 points for Auburn while shooting 40.4 percent from three-point range and winning MVP honors in the SEC tournament.

Junior guard Jared Harper is right behind him with 15.2 points per game.

Junior guard Terrell Brown, who was first-team All-WAC, is the only Aggie to average double digits this season, scoring 11.3 points per game.

Auburn will next face the winner of Thursday afternoon’s game between No. 4 Kansas and No. 13 Northeastern.
