Alabama Men’s Basketball Blows Past Georgia, 80-60, Wednesday Night...

on Thursday, January 26, 2017

Crimson Tide Men's Basketball:

Freshman Braxton Key registered a career-high 26 points to help lift the Alabama men's basketball team to an impressive 80-60 road victory over the Georgia Bulldogs on Wednesday night at Stegeman Coliseum. With the win, the Crimson Tide improves to an overall 12-7 record, including a 5-2 mark in Southeastern Conference play.

Alabama had four players finish in double figures. Along with Key's career-high scoring output, senior Corban Collins and junior Riley Norris registered 15 points each, while senior Jimmie Taylor added 10. Combined, the four Crimson Tide players scored 66 of the team's 80 points.

"This was a terrific victory and effort by our guys," Alabama head coach Avery Johnson said. "I thought we were sharp and confident from the start of this game. Obviously in our situation we had a pretty disappointing game last game on the road. We got back up and practiced on Monday and Tuesday, and had a good work out this morning.

We were fortunate to win this game. We didn't have room for much margin of error, we shot from the three good tonight, played pretty good overall team defense."

Alabama shot 51 percent from the field in the 40 minute contest, while shooting a season-best 60 percent (9-of-15) from beyond the arc. The Tide also outrebounded the Bulldogs by a 40-27 decision.

The Tide will be back in action on Saturday, Jan. 28, when it hosts the Mississippi State Bulldogs at Coleman Coliseum in a game that is set to broadcast on the SEC Network at 5 p.m. CT.
