In their seven games so far, Jemison has averaged 16.3 points and 8.3 rebounds and Torrance has averaged 14 points and 5.0 assists. Both will be sophomore on the Crimson Tide’s basketball team this fall.

This has been going on for a couple of weeks. I'm glad rolltide.com is reporting on it. Now maybe they'll update the bios of the basketball team. Maybe not (check Hollinger's bio for verification). They should let Alias write his bio for the site.
It seems that Torrance and Jemison have made a good showing for themselves out there... hopefully this experience helps them come next season. I fully expect both of them to be major contributors on our team next year.
Tide basketball commercial wins an award. Now I have to google this to verify it was an actual commercial. Ok, it's not on youtube... if anyone has this email it to me please.
