At minimum, Alabama is still alive, and the Tide has Sexton to thank for that.

On Thursday, the Crimson Tide picked up their first big win, knocking off eight seed Texas A&M following a buzzer beating lay-in by Collin Sexton.

"We just wanted to come out and play a lot better than what we did in the first half", Ingram said. 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. Aside from his career-high 6 3-pointers, the freshman had the assist of the day with a behind-the-back dish to Donta Hall for a slam.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers meet Friday in the college basketball SEC Tournament quarterfinals at the Scottrade Center. Like I said, it is just beginning right here.

With Hightower emerging as a second scorer, and the rest of the rotation making significant contributions, Georgia stands a decent chance against a Kentucky squad that's been far from consistent.

The Aggies had won three in a row entering the game, including a 68-66 victory over the Crimson Tide six days ago.

Sexton scored 27 points and saved the most important for the end after Alabama surrendered a 12-point lead.

"We called timeout to get organized", Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy said.




On the season, Auburn basketball averages 84.0 points, 38.3 rebounds and 14.7 assists per game. Alabama vs Auburn live stream is on WatchESPN.

Top-seeded Auburn very almost got another shot at Texas A&M.

The freshman guard made a scintillating play and hard scoop shot to give his team life in its pursuit of an NCAA Tournament berth. Starks previously scored 23 points in a game at Auburn on February 7.

Sexton started what he hopes is a fantastic weekend in St. Louis with a game-winning floater at the buzzer to beat Texas A&M Thursday.

Alabama continued to maintain its lead, 62-56, with 7:36 to go, but, A&M started to find its rhythm, going on a seven-minute 11-5 run to tie the game at 67 apiece with 40 seconds left on the game clock. But Robertson's three-point attempt went long and Georgia secured the victory. The trend continued throughout the contest: Missouri made a run, Georgia responded.

"We got stuck against their zone in the second half but persevered", Johnson said. This is not the end for us, and we look to bounce back pretty strong.

"We did a poor job of fouling", Robertson said. "As you all could see, we shot the ball a lot better in the second half, and we just played with a lot more confidence". After scoring 8 consecutive points, Alabama led 54-42. Sexton now has 569 points this season.
