It may be worth a reminder after New Mexico State’s NCAA Tournament loss to Auburn on Thursday: Layups are not against the rules.Stephen Curry’s propensity to make 3s may have changed the way basketball is played forever, but he isn’t Euclid. He isn’t redefining mathematics.

Instead, AJ Harris of New Mexico State, his 12-seed Aggies trailing 5-seed Auburn in the final six seconds of their first-round game, drove to within inches of the game-tying layup before whipping a left-handed pass out behind the 3-point line to Terrell Brown.It looked like a horrendous decision when Brown’s 3-pointer fell well short. New Mexico State got a momentary reprieve with an even worse decision by Auburn’s Bryce Brown, who fouled Terrell as he launched that triple. Terrell Brown actually went to the foul line with chance to win the game, but missed the first and third free throws before the ball was tipped out of bounds by Auburn with 1.7 seconds left.It is here we remind you: If Harris had opted for the layup, they’d certainly have been heading for overtime against an Auburn team with two players fouled out, including starter Jared Harper.Everyone is going to remember that Terrell Brown missed those two free throws. It was reminiscent of Memphis’ Darius Washington in the 2005 Conference USA title game, who was fouled and had three free throws that could have given the Tigers an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. He made one, too.But the truth is New Mexico State had a chance to tie this game with a layup and opted for a 3-pointer. And given a reprieve, another opportunity to get something going to the goal off of a baseline inbound play, they instead ran a set that got Trevelin Queen a wide-open corner 3. Queen had made 4-of-7 from long distance before that shot but, perhaps too conscious of the limited time, he released the shot too quickly. It did not come close.Auburn won, 78-77.
