AUBURN, Alabama -- Auburn will participate in several exhibition games in the Bahamas and will also begin a home-and-home series with Clemson next basketball season as coach Tony Barbee continues to try to upgrade the program's nonconference schedule.
The Tigers' non-conference schedule came under fire last season, when they finished last in the SEC and were 6-7 against a nonconference schedule that ranked 293rd nationally.
