Collin Sexton hits buzzer-beater that could push 'Bama into tourney


Alabama scored a thrilling 71-70 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday in the second round of the SEC Tournament. His play came after Texas A&M's T.J. Starks hit a 3-pointer that produced the Aggies' first lead since the middle of the first half. The other is Alabama point guard Collin Sexton, a potential star who is as dynamic of a college guard as you'll see.

After taking a 35-28 lead at the half, the Crimson Tide remained hot to begin the second half, using an 8-0 run over a span of 1:20 for its largest lead of the day, 54-42, at the 13:03 mark.

Texas A&M averages 41.3 rebounds per game, which ranks fifth in the nation.

Alabama now advances to Friday's quarterfinals where the team will face No. 1 Auburn.

The Crimson Tide are sitting on the bubble, and Sports Illustrated's Michael Beller has them in the "Next Four Out".

Should we be surprised?

Whether the win gets Alabama in or not depends on who you talk to. "We spent all week getting ready for both teams". "We work on a lot of those end-of-game situations".

"They are going to keep doubting us". Like pretty much all freshmen, there have been stretches of the season where he's had to adjust his style of play, but that playmaker mentality has always been there.

The Aggies wait to find out their postseason fate.

But this wasn't just about the Sexton shot. The Tide nearly certainly needed this win to qualify. After losing five in a row, it would've been easy to let the momentum swings affect them in a big way.

The Tide should be in the tournament, which would give the SEC a total of eight teams.

To say that Johnson was pleased with that response would be an understatement. The Crimson Tide outshot the Aggies 48 percent to 39 percent which ultimately proved to be the difference in the game.

"Alabama played great. Congratulations to them. They fought hard. They responded to adversity". He had 25 points Alabama's most recent meeting with Auburn, a 90-71 Tigers win two weeks ago.

I'm not a bracketologist, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Alabama heads into the game with records of 17-14 straight up (SU) and 15-14-1 against the spread (ATS). The Alabama Crimson Tide are shooting 32.3 percent from beyond the arc and 66.9 percent from the free throw line. That just adds fuel to the fire for us.

It was the second time this season they've had their hearts ripped out by a buzzer-beater. "I feel like we played 40 minutes, and we played hard". Despite the loss, Sexton was the game's leading scorer with 23 points. "We got organized. If we could have made him catch it a step further (back) and maybe put two people on him, I'd do it differently knowing he was able to get it off, but he made an awkward shot".
