Charles Barkley had a great time watching his Auburn Tigers play in the Final Four. He just would have had a better time if they had one.
On Saturday night as Auburn took on the Virginia Cavaliers, it appeared that Barkley’s alma mater would be heading to the NCAA men’s basketball championship. However, Virginia’s Kyle Guy was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 0.6 seconds left.
Barkley was standing courtside, and his reaction was heartbreaking.
Guy would go on to hit all three free throws, giving Virginia a one-point win, 63-62.
Barkley had to give props to Guy after the game, and admitted that it was a foul on Auburn on Virginia’s 3-point attempt.
It was a great season for the Tigers and no doubt a fun one for Barkley to watch.
