Alabama upset No. 16 Auburn 81-64 in the SEC quarterfinals today, with the Crimson Tide leaning heavily on guard Collin Sexton to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. The freshman was good for a game-high 31 points and seven rebounds, but Sexton’s seemingly now-routine Impossible Play of the Game came on his only assist:
Alabama sits at 19-14 overall and 8-10 in the SEC, so Avery Johnson’s team will need two more of these outings from Sexton to get to the Big Dance. The Tide will either play Kentucky or Georgia in the semifinals tomorrow.
