Did Auburn get away with one?

The 22nd-ranked Tigers escaped with a 65-62 win over Florida in the semifinal of the SEC Tournament, but not without controversy.

With Florida trailing by three points in the dying seconds of Saturday's clash, Gators guard Andrew Nembhard appeared to be fouled while attempting a desperation 3-pointer.

However, no call was made, leaving the commentators and Florida fans in disbelief.

Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl jumped on the ESPN panel following the game and revealed that he instructed senior guard Bryce Brown to foul before a potential tying three could be attempted.

"He waits till he takes a shot and obviously there's contact there, and you put yourself at risk," Pearl said postgame.

The Gators will now be forced to sweat it out on Selection Sunday, while the Tigers advance to the SEC Tournament final for the first time since 2000.
