Basket at buzzer advances Alabama

Ikmnstwvoypugeafom8y

Alabama now advances to Friday's quarterfinals where the team will face No. 1 Auburn. "We got a lot of players, got players around me".

"We've got to win three games to a win a championship", Pearl said Thursday evening after Auburn's practice at Washington University.

Not to be overlooked was the play of guard Dazon Ingram, who had 13 points and nine rebounds, prompting Johnson to say that his backcourt combination looked like one of the best in the country.

One of the lasting images of this first-ever SEC Tournament in St. Louis has to be Bruce Pearl ranting on the sideline after the game and escorted away by security. Alabama won the game 81-63 and sent Auburn home from the tourney with an early exit. On the other hand, a victory over Auburn would pretty much guarantee Alabama a tournament spot.

The Alabama basketball team will get another chance to avenge a loss from an opponent during their five-game losing streak.

To make the moment even more dramatic, Sexton's basket punched Alabama's ticket to The Dance.

For Auburn, a victory against the Tide probably won't improve their tournament seeding. We got stuck against their zone in the second half, but they just persevered ...

"They are going to keep doubting us".

Despite scoring well all season, Auburn has managed to win just three of its 10 meets entering Friday's finale.

No. 4 Kentucky vs.

Alabama got freshman forward Herb Jones back in the lineup for the SEC Tournament.

Jontay Porter led Missouri (20-12) with 20 points and eight rebounds.

Mississippi State is certainly athletic enough to cause Tennessee some trouble, but the Bulldogs will have to commit on the defensive end of the floor for that to happen. His brother, Michael, a projected lottery pick who played just two minutes in the season opener and later had surgery, finished with 12 points and 8 rebounds, but shot just 5 for 17 from the field. Defensively, Alabama basketbally yields 69.7 points per game against the opposing teams. The Aggies grabbed 17 offensive boards and scored 19 second-chance points. The Auburn Tigers are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line.
