We're a couple of days into the NCAA Tournament. It's getting intense.

Even the cheerleaders are getting into it, apparently.

Friday night, No. 4 seed Auburn took on No. 13 seed College of Charleston. The Tigers were a sizable favorite, but it was a popular upset pick, too.

(ESPN's Dick Vitale, among others, picked the No. 13 seed.)

Auburn ended up winning an ugly game, 62-58.

Prior to tipoff, a couple of cheerleaders apparently had a bit of an altercation in the bathroom. It was apparently one-sided.

Clemson beat reporter Grace Raynor captured the scene:

"Overseen in the women's restroom: 2 very nice, excited (College of Charleston) cheerleaders say hi to an Auburn cheerleader. Auburn cheerleader gives the cold shoulder, walks straight by. It's on," she tweeted.

You have to love that.

Auburn sent a small cheerleading crew to San Diego, where tonight's game is being played.

Auburn moves on to face Clemson in the second round. The game is set for 7:10 p.m. E.T. on Sunday. It'll be televised on TBS.
