Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
SPOKANE, Wash. – All-American Johni Broome recorded his 14th double-double and fourth-seeded Auburn had a chance to advance with a 3-pointer at the buzzer but 13th-seeded Yale upset the Tigers 78-76 in the NCAA Tournament Friday at Spokane Arena.

"Congratulate Yale on a great victory," Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said. "We respected our opponent. We knew we'd have to play well to win. We did not take good care of the ball. We turned it over too much. They made big shots."

Trailing by three with 33.6 seconds to play, Johni Broome drew a foul and made both free throws to pull the Tigers within one at 75-74.
