College basketball season began last night and the Auburn Tigers defeated George Mason 70-52 at Auburn Arena to start the season off with a win. The Tigers are ranked 15th in the nation to start the season and have high hopes after last season ended with a much shorter run in the NCAA Tournament than they wanted. Head coach Bruce Pearl joined The Opening Kickoff this morning with Mark and Lee to discuss his team, differences from last year’s squad, and what he hopes to get out of the season.
