Collin Sexton beats buzzer, maybe saves Alabama's season in SEC Tournament win

Sexton took the inbounds pass with 4.4 seconds remaining from underneath his own basket, raced down the floor and softly lifted a finger roll over the outstretched arms of the Aggies' defense to give the Tide the buzzer-beating win.

Alabama kept its NCAA Tournament hopes alive with a thrilling last-second win over Texas A&M on Thursday. A loss would have certainly burst the Tide's NCAA tournament bubble. And we've just got a never quit attitude. Collin Sexton responded to a T.J. Starks three pointer with four seconds left by hitting an underhand floater as time expired.

Round III between the two nemeses will take place on a neutral court, when top-seeded Auburn takes on ninth-needed Alabama at noon Friday in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament in St. Louis' Scottrade Center. I know we'll be fired up for that game. "The reason we called timeout was to not let that happen on a broken play, and he made that happen".

No Tigers were selected to the All-SEC first team. So Thursday's SEC Tournament game against Texas A&M was a must win if they wanted to play later into March. "We lost five straight, and we came back and won this one".

The Aggies captured a 44-33 advantage on the boards, which included 17 offensive rebounds and 19 second chance points. The Alabama Crimson Tide are averaging 72.4 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 69.7 points on 41.1 percent shooting.

However, Starks would answer Sexton yet again. He followed with a layup to regain the lead for Alabama.

And if Sexton continues to create magic like this throughout the postseason, he will be a player that Crimson Tide fans will never forget.

"When you're in the gym, sometimes you imagine stuff like that and you always have to be prepared", Sexton said.

Herbert Jones, who played a year ago at Hale County High School, returned from a concussion that caused him to miss last Saturday's game in College Station to play 25 minutes. I've said all along that I think Alabama is one of the most talented teams in the country.

"We got stuck against their zone in the second half but persevered", Johnson said. "They showed some maturity". The team's split their series during the regular season. They were strong mentally.
