Alabama Men’s Basketball Lose again to Auburn, 82-77...

on Sunday, February 05, 2017

Crimson Tide Men's Basketball:

The Alabama men's basketball team fell late to Auburn, 82-77, in front of a sellout Coleman Coliseum crowd on Saturday night. The Tide trailed by 14 points with just over two minutes to play and was able to cut the lead to three, but the Tigers connected on four free throws in the final minute to seal the win.

The Tide finished the game shooting 43 percent from the field and 25 percent from beyond the arc, while the Tigers connecting on 51 percent from the floor and 56 percent from deep. Alabama outrebounded Auburn, 47-28, and outscored the Tigers on second chance points, 19-5.

"Some of the three-pointers we didn't even contest," Johnson said. "We were playing their guys like they couldn't even shoot, but I will do a better job of making sure I explain the scouting report. Hopefully we will get better at executing. When we outrebounded a team by 20, you should win that game. Unfortunately we didn't do that tonight."

Alabama heads to Columbia, S.C. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, to take on the No. 19 South Carolina Gamecocks. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT with the contest airing on SEC Network.
