Auburn is coming off a strong performance last weekend at Ole Miss, where the Tigers won all four matches they played against the Rebels, UT-Martin, Christian Brothers and an Ole Miss alumni team. The Tigers return 10 letter-winners from a team that finished 11-19 overall, 5-15 in SEC play in 2011.
Florida State advanced to the Final Four for the first time in school history in 2011, finishing with a 28-7 overall record and winning the ACC title. Troy posted a 16-14 overall record last season and qualified for the Sun Belt tournament for the first time in six years.
