Auburn vs. Iowa: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Thursday’s first round game

Auburn basketball opens its run at another Final Four on Thursday against Iowa at Legacy Arena in Birmingham. If you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

No. 9 seed Auburn faces No. 8 Iowa in one of the most intriguing games of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday for a chance to face No. 1 Houston/No. 16 Northern Kentucky in the second round on Saturday.

With this game being considered a “toss-up” by NCAA Tournament standards, Auburn has just as much of a chance to win as it does to lose. One way that Auburn can ensure that they have the best possible chance to win is by playing with high energy.

“You could tell from the game we played with great energy against Tennessee. Both halves when we came out we were non-sluggish, hitting shots and getting stops,” Auburn guard K.D. Johnson said ahead of Thursday’s game. “In the Arkansas game, we got down early in the first half, and in the second half, so that put us in the hole. It’s March now so we have to come in with full energy for the whole 40 minutes.”
