Much of Auburn’s hopes for an upset — and a cover for its backers — depend on junior Jared Harper. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound point guard must be able to stick with Tre Jones, one of Duke’s heralded freshmen.

If he requires help on Jones’ drives, R.J. Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish already have a major advantage.
