An amazing game that ended with an amazing shot by Brock from just a shade inside of half court!
Every time Tennessee made a run in the 2nd half we answered it! Our point guards yet again shined even though the stats don't show it, Green dominated inside, and Hillman led the way with 16 points including 3-6 from 3 point range. Gee had a horrible game forcing shots, but made a CRUCIAL jumper with under a minute to play to tie the game. Andrew Steele continues to produce off the bench... his defensive play and his dribble penetration was big early on in the 2nd half. I also like the defensive effort of Knox and Coleman... they clearly made the difference inside with Green.
- Held the best FG team in the SEC to 38.5% from the field
- FT shooting... Gee started off slow, but as a team 16-19. AWESOME!
- Contained Smith and Maze. Kudos to the defense!
- Brock again from outside
- Gee took at least 6 bad shots in the game. Forced it too much
- 20 turnovers... and only 7 assist.
What a great way to end the regular season... 4-1 in our last five is more than what any Alabama fan expected. What could've been if we hit FTs against Auburn. We are the 4 seed in the West playing Vandy in the 1st round. Get by that and Tennessee (or is it the Cocks) is next. I REALLY THINK WE CAN MAKE SOME NOISE IN THE SEC TOURNAMENT!!
Great win by the team and congrats to Coach Pearson for winning 2 in a row on the road!
