Collin Sexton Keeps Alabama's NCAA Tournament Hopes Alive

"It's a big rivalry game", Alabama's Collin Sexton said.

Sexton then took the ball the length of the court for a game-winning buzzer-beating finger roll. The Tide were able to advance in the SEC Tournament after an incredible finish that included a buzzer beater by freshman star Collin Sexton.

But after Alabama made seven consecutive shots to pad its lead, it missed the next 12, providing an opening that the Aggies (20-12) seized upon.

The biggest story entering the game was without a doubt the matchup between Sexton and Starks, two dynamic freshman who have been perhaps the biggest keys to their success this season.

The Crimson Tide shot 45.2 percent in the second half (14-of-31) to total 47.5 percent (28-of-59) for the contest while holding Texas A&M to just 39.3 percent from the floor (24-of-61) in the game. On Alabama's next possession, Sexton nailed another floater with 16 seconds remaining to put Alabama back on top by two. Davis leads in rebounds with 8.7 while Wilson tops in assists with 4.0 per game. Despite the Aggies outrebounding the Tide, 44-33, and owning the advantage in second chance points, 19-4, the Crimson Tide's edge in points in the paint, 36-32, and three-straight field goals down the stretch were enough to seize the win.

The Crimson Tide have been outscored by an average of 11.0 points in their last five games.

The Tide started the game strong and it seemed as if they would finish strong as well. Alabama ranks 210th in rebounds allowed per game (36.2).

Robert Williams was stout defensively in the second half, grabbing six rebounds and swatting six blocks, however, struggled to get going offensively, with just six second half points.

The Aggies wait to find out their postseason fate. ESPN's Joe Lunardi still has the Aggies listed as a 7-seed in the tournament but there are bound to be ample changes to the projected bracket with conference tournaments underway.
