NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Being involved in an ongoing FBI investigation limited what Auburn coach Bruce Pearl and his Tigers could say at Southeastern Conference basketball media day.
Pearl being Pearl meant the coach didn't stop selling his program as much as possible.
"You take all that and you just focus it onto the basketball court, and that's what we're doing," Pearl said. "Our kids have practiced really well. They practice really hard, and I think their attitudes are extremely positive. At this moment right now, we're sitting in a position to still be competitive."
