Alabama is an occasionally pretty fun college basketball team with a sub-.500 conference record, and they desperately need wins in the SEC Tournament in order to get in the NCAA Tournament. Luckily for the Tide, they earned a dramatic one today against Texas A&M.
With 4.4 seconds to go, the Aggies’ T.J. Starks hit what should have been a game-winning three that put Alabama down 70-69 with 4.4 seconds to go. In response, Bama did what they’ve done all year and just put the ball in the hands of the great freshman point guard Collin Sexton. Sexton covered the length of the court and scored while the A&M defense basically enjoyed the show.
Sexton scored his team’s last six points (27 total), coming through in an otherwise awful Alabama dry spell which let A&M come back from a 60-52 deficit. It’d be cool to see more of him.
