Alabama rolls over AU, advances to SEC semifinals

Alabama rolls over AU, advances to SEC semifinals

"We just wanted to come out and play a lot better than what we did in the first half", Ingram said.

Sexton had a lights-out game, registering his 13th 20-point contest of the season, scoring a game-high 27 points, to go along with five assists, three rebounds and one steal. Guard play is one of the most important facets once tourney time arrives and Florida has some game changers in their backcourt with senior point guard Chris Chiozza leading the way, so as much as I wanna take Bruce Pearl's Tigers, I think the Gators cut down the nets in St. Louis.

After the fact, both coaches recognized the advantages that were present for Alabama's Collin Sexton as he made a game-winning mad dash for a buzzer-beating layup at Scottrade Center. With that being said, I expect Tennessee to win the conference tournament crown.

With Hightower emerging as a second scorer, and the rest of the rotation making significant contributions, Georgia stands a decent chance against a Kentucky squad that's been far from consistent. Mostly because no other player scored more than 11 points for Alabama. When he took over and the momentum of the game turned, Pearl said, "I could see it bothered us more than it should have". "Second half, they definitely hit us in the mouth first, and I think that always hurts". Wins over Tennessee, Florida, Saint Mary's, Alabama and Marquette give the Bulldogs a decent resume, but two defeats to SC and one loss to Vanderbilt stand out as the key blemishes alongside the poor league record. 5 Texas A&M on December 30, and it will have another opportunity to impress the selection committee when it faces top-seeded Auburn on Friday. Now, the Tide and Tigers will meet for a third time this season with a berth in the semifinals on the line.

Texas A&M: Even with the loss, the Aggies appear likely to reach the NCAA Tournament for a second time in three seasons after beginning the day 25th in RPI.

Here's What Mark Cuban Was Accused Of Doing Back In 2011
Eventually, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office determined there was insufficient evidence to press criminal charges. Cuban steadfastly denies the accusation throughout the conversation and re-iterated his denial in a statement to the Week.

A big deciding factor in the game was Auburn's ability to share the basketball and hit open threes.

Four players are averaging at least 9.9 points per game for Alabama, they are Collin Sexton (18.3), Donta Hall (10.9), John Petty (10.4) and Dazon Ingram (9.9).

Can Mississippi State shed its reputation and defeat a top SEC team?

Yante Maten and the Georgia Bulldogs did their best job to prevent that from happening.
