Sexton's buzzer beater lifts Alabama over Texas A&M, 71-70”

In their second meeting in the last five days, the Aggie men's basketball team (20-12, 9-9 SEC) lost to Alabama (18-14, 8-10 SEC), 71-70, in the second round of the SEC Tournamenton Thursday afternoon.

The Crimson Tide entered the game 56th in the NCAA's RPI ratings despite its late-season woes, thanks in large part to earlier victories this season over ranked opponents such as Auburn, Oklahoma, Florida and Tennessee. He scored 31 points, 21 of them in the second half, as Alabama went on a 28-3 run after trailing by 120 at halftime.

Even that opportunity seemed to have vanished when Starks hit a clutch 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds to go to give the Aggies, who had trailed by 10 points with just over nine minutes to play, a 70-68 lead. Alabama won the game 81-63 and sent Auburn home from the tourney with an early exit.

The Tigers, who are also the top-seed, defeated Alabama 90-71 on February 21st.

"We can't really look at the negatives of our past because it's not going to do anything", Krippner said.

With the win, Alabama earns a trip to the quarterfinals against top-ranked Auburn, where the two will meet in an Iron Bowl of the basketball court.

The freshman guard made a scintillating play and hard scoop shot to give his team life in its pursuit of an NCAA Tournament berth.

"We've got to win three games to a win a championship", Pearl said Thursday evening after Auburn's practice at Washington University.

Whether that shot merely gave Alabama's NCAA hopes a one-day extension or propels the Crimson Tide into the field depends on a person's choice of bracketologists. "I think that's probably as much a factor as anything". "He knew how fast I could get there, so he said, 'Just get to the basket, get a layup for us'". Four players scored in double figures for the Bulldogs, and Lamar Peters was excellent in scoring 24 points. The Aggie freshman guard finished with 23 points.

Tennessee vs. Mississippi State, 6 p.m. Defensively, Alabama basketbally yields 69.7 points per game against the opposing teams.

"For us, it's about getting back to a good, solid lineup that everybody is predictable with and that everybody trusts each other and doing that for a few meets".
