Tide Men’s Basketball Blasted By Arkansas, 87-68, Wednesday Night...

on Thursday, February 02, 2017

Crimson Tide Men's Basketball:

The Alabama men's basketball team lost an 87-68 decision to the Arkansas Razorbacks on Wednesday night at Bud Walton Arena. With the loss, the Crimson Tide falls to an overall 13-8 record, including a 6-3 mark in Southeastern Conference play.

"From the jump, Arkansas dominated us today," Alabama head coach Avery Johnson said. "They came ready to play and were in bounce-back mode after their last loss. They started off with a wide-open three and basically set the tone for the entire game. 

We didn't do a good job against their pressure, even when it was single coverage in full court pressure. This game is not indicative of our team or season, but give them credit. This was a different team than what we saw on Saturday."

The Tide had three players finish in double figures, led by freshman Dazon Ingram's 14 points. Freshman Braxton Key registered 12 points in the contest, while junior Ar'Mond Davis was the last Alabama player to finish in double figures with 10 points.

Senior Dusty Hannahs led Arkansas with 19 points off the bench, connecting on 5-of-6 three-pointers. He was one of five Razorback players to finish in double-digits.

The Tide finished the game shooting 39.6 percent (21-of-53) from the field in the 40 minute contest, while going 6-of-18 (.333) from behind the three-point line. In comparison, Arkansas connected on 49.2 percent (29-of-59) from the floor and 47.1 percent (11-of-23) from beyond the arc. Alabama also committed 18 turnovers which resulted in a big 28-7 Arkansas advantage in points-off-turnovers.

Alabama will return to action on Saturday night when it hosts rival Auburn at 7:30 p.m. CT on SEC Network. It was announced earlier in the day that Saturday's game is sold out.
