Head coach Bill Self of the Kansas Jayhawks reacts to a play against the Auburn Tigers during their game in the Second Round of the NCAA Basketball Tournament at Vivint Smart Home Arena on March 23, 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

A year after an unexpected SEC title and one NCAA Tournament game victory, the Tigers are headed to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 16 years. I feel we let them live on the three-point line. "We let those guys get comfortable and that's what led to the big deficit in the first half".

For Kansas, it's a disappointing end to an underwhelming season that started with the Jayhawks as the No. 1 team in the AP preseason poll. With that, the No. 4 seed Jayhawks (26-10) were all but done in a game Auburn led by as many as 27 points.

Up next for the Auburn Tigers is North Carolina or Washington in the Sweet 16 on Thursday. Brown connected on each of his first four shots from long range while point guard Jared Harper had little trouble darting his way though Kansas' mediocre transition defense.

Auburn is one of the nation's best at creating turnovers and Kansas is one of the worst at coughing them up.

Kansas star Dedric Lawson, who led the Big 12 in scoring and rebounding this season, was shut down early against Auburn as the Tigers raced out to a big lead in the first half.

The Jayhawks (26-10) made their first seven attempts in the second half, but the Tigers countered by making their first five.

With Apple Card, Apple is also aiming to be more transparent about the fees and high interest rates associated with other cards. Apple Music is already competing with Spotify, but the company has hired Hollywood stars to launch a Netflix competitor as well.

"They made every shot - nine threes the first half", forward Dedric Lawson said after scoring 25 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.

It was fitting that on late Saturday night with most of the country watching, the best player during Auburn's second-round win over Kansas was Bryce Brown. But also how we played shouldn't take away from how great Auburn played. "We've got to know we're getting everybody's Super Bowl". I thought we'd respond better. They said the team rallied behind some of the toughest circumstances earlier this year with the losses of Udoka Azubuike, Silvio De Sousa, and Lagerald Vick. They hit me at times that I wasn't even open and they just really like when I catch and shoot the ball.

Auburn forward Chuma Okeke (5) shoots over Kansas guard Devon Dotson (11) during the first half of a second-round game in the NCAA men's college basketball tournament Saturday, March 23, 2019, in Salt Lake City. They were fantastic. We hadn't seen an onslaught like that all year.

Bryce Brown led the way with 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting including a 7-of-11 performance from long range.

Advantage on paper, advantage on the court; Auburn had three steals in the first four minutes.

"We weren't very happy", he said.

KU's 75 points were its fewest in a NCAA Tournament game since an Elite 8 loss against OR on March 25, 2017 in which Kansas was held to 60 points.
