Watch Collin Sexton’s Buzzer Beater to Keep Alabama Alive in SEC Tournament
Alabama desperately need a win in the SEC Tournament to keep postseason hopes alive and the superstar freshman delivered when the team needed it most.
Collin Sexton scored the team's final seven points but it was his last basket that might have sent the Crimson Tide to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. After Texas A&M hit a three to take a 70-69 lead, Sexton took an inbounds pass the length of the court and dropped a finger roll in as time expired to give the Tide a one-point win.
This is how it looked on the SEC Network.
Here's another angle of the game-winner.
Sexton scored a game-high 27 points to help put an end to Alabama's five-game losing streak, which was essential if the Tide wanted any chance to make the tournament. ESPN's Joe Lunardi had dropped the team out of his bracket for the first time since January but most experts said it wouldn't take much to get Avery Johnson's team back in.
Alabama will have another chance to add to its resume with a game against conference co-champion Auburn on Friday in the conference quarterfinals.
