Auburn's Bruce Pearl explains heated exchange after loss to Alabama

ST LOUIS MO – MARCH 09 Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

The Alabama Crimson Tide (18-14) are coming from a 71-70 win over Texas A&M in wich Collin Sexton scored the buzzer beating shot. He did so just moments after T.J. Starks hit a three-pointer to put the Aggies up 70-69 with 4.4 seconds remaining, taking the inbounds pass following a timeout and racing up the court for the game victor. He put out one hand up to rally the crowd, stared down the Auburn ball-handler and then pointed both index fingers to his temples, as if daring him to make a mistake.

Sophomore Dazon Ingram and junior Donta Hall also reached double figures, as Ingram collected 14 points and seven rebounds, while Hall added 11 points and six rebounds for the Tide before exiting the game late after with an injury after taking a nasty spill on the court.

Texas A&M basketball just lost another heartbreaker in their first game of the SEC tournament to Alabama.

"This is no magic formula", Johnson said.

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.

Starks matched his career high with 23 points for Texas A&M, and Admon Gilder had 15. "I just know we wouldn't". Even Auburn coach Bruce Pearl acknowledged the point guard's ability to carry a team for long stretches. Auburn dominated the last meeting, getting 16 more shots than Alabama. 5 Texas A&M on December 30, and it will have another opportunity to impress the selection committee when it faces top-seeded Auburn on Friday.

For Auburn, a victory against the Tide probably won't improve their tournament seeding.

An Army bomb disposal team was scrambled to the scene on the A2 between Belast and Bangor at around 8.30am on Tuesday. Army technical officers have examined the auto and the road was closed to traffic.

The freshman guard made a scintillating play and hard scoop shot to give his team life in its pursuit of an NCAA Tournament berth.

LOUIS | Trailing by 10 points at the half, the Alabama basketball team listened to its coach, Avery Johnson, as he spoke in what he called "understandable English". The Cowboys will face Kansas, the Golden Eagles battle Villanova, and the Irish will take on Duke Thursday, and each of those three wins would do more for them than a win over Auburn would do for Alabama.

No Tigers were selected to the All-SEC first team.

Yante Maten and the Georgia Bulldogs did their best job to prevent that from happening.

"I'm definitely going to have to crash the boards", said Auburn's Desean Murray, who garnered 18 rebounds in the first two rivalry renditions.

Pearl was upset not only that his team was outscored 50-22 in the second half of an 81-63 loss to Alabama, but that something happened in the handshake line. But Robertson's three-point attempt went long and Georgia secured the victory. "When they made their run, it bothered us more than it should have". "We didn't get good looks offensively early".
