00-01 Stats:
Auburn | SEC

The lowdown
2000-01 record: 18-14; 7-9 in SEC (t4th in West)
Final Ranking: NR
Postseason: Lost to Purdue 79-61 in second round of NIT.

Three Questions for 2001-02
1. Can Marquis Daniels play the point? If not, then who? Will that take away from his scoring?

2. Will Marco Killingsworth live up to his preseason hype? Can he be the impact player on the wing?

3. Will Adam Harrington deliver as the top shooter in the league? Will he be a defensive liability?

Andy Katz's Scenarios
Best case: If the Tigers get the necessary inside scoring and Daniels makes the transition to the point then they should be back in the NCAA Tournament.

Worst case: If Mack McGadney isn't 100 percent then the Tigers might not make the tournament and end up in the NIT.
