Crimson Tide Football:

A trio of Alabama football players were voted to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District IV team, it was announced Friday.

Redshirt junior defensive back Keaton Anderson, senior tight end Hale Hentges and sophomore offensive lineman Jedrick Wills Jr. all earned first-team honors.

Alabama football has now tallied 17 CoSIDA All-District honors since 2009.

Anderson, who earned his undergraduate degree in marketing with a 3.82 GPA, is now pursuing a master's in marketing with a 4.0 GPA.

Hentges also earned a bachelor's degree in marketing and is now pursuing a master's in marketing.

He earned a 3.74 GPA as an undergraduate and holds a 4.0 GPA in his master's program. Wills Jr. carries a 3.52 while pursuing a degree in finance.

All three student-athletes now advance to the national ballot with a chance to be voted to the Academic All-America Team later this season.

Alabama football players have earned Academic All-America honors seven times under head coach Nick Saban, the most notable being Barrett Jones, who was the first four-time honoree in CoSIDA Academic All-America history.

Crimson Tide Athletics:

In an ugly display of basketball, Alabama found its way through the mire and much to defeat Ball State, 79-61, and win its first game at the Charleston Classic on Friday.

The victory came roughly 24 hours after the Crimson Tide suffered its first loss of the season to Northeastern.

Despite some early hiccups, Alabama led for the final 37 minutes and dominated the Cardinals — a team that fell to 1-3 because of atrocious offensive execution and bad decision-making.

The Cardinals made only three of their 12 three-point attempts and connected on 28 percent of their shots from the field in the first half.

Ball State’s deficit climbed to 13 points by intermission as Alabama sophomore Herbert Jones drew three charges in the first 20 minutes.

Jones contributed 13 points before fouling out while Tevin Mack added 20 and Donta Hall produced 12.

Mack began to assert himself in the second half, knocking down three shots from beyond the arc.

One of Mack’s three-pointers extended Alabama’s lead to 20 points, 67-47, with 5:49 in regulation, and by then the outcome had been decided.

Alabama will now play the winner of Appalachian State/Wichita State on Sunday.
