Auburn, playing under the cloud of a federal investigation into corruption in college basketball, overcame a awful shooting performance to win in its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2003. Auburn survived thanks to 21 Charleston turnovers and some untimely missed late free throws in the final minute. Then, Okeke, who shoots 69 percent from the line, tossed the ball to sophomore guard Jared Harper, who knocks down free throws at an 82 percent clip, and Harper ended up standing at the free-throw line.

The Cougars pulled to 61-58 when Grant Riller made one-of-two free throws with 20.4 seconds left. It appeared Riller was fouled but no call was made.
