Collin Sexton hits buzzer-beating floater to save Alabama in SEC Tournament

Kentucky's Wenyen Gabriel celebrates after making a 3-point basket during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Alabama in the semifinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament Saturday

Sexton drove the length of the court in the final seconds and hit a floater at the buzzer to give ninth-seeded Alabama (18-14) a 71-70 win over Texas A&M on Thursday in the second round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament. ESPN's Joe Lunardi had the Tide as one of his first four out going into Thursday, meaning they're going to need multiple wins in the SEC Tournament to even have a prayer of reaching the Big Dance.

A lot of players would have pulled up well beyond the 3-point line, so Sexton deserves a ton of credit for his clock awareness. The Auburn Tigers are averaging 84 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 73.1 points on 42.3 percent shooting.

"Sexton is a tremendous, tremendous individual player", Pearl said.

"The key is to be able to utilize his ability, and without it taking away from the team aspect". From start to finish, we have a pretty good resume. "He's a tough cover".

Panthers reportedly trade Daryl Worley to Eagles for Torrey Smith
He'll earn $5 million this season so the move saves the Super Bowl champion Eagles much-needed space under the salary cap. Needing to shed salary ahead of next week's salary cap deadline, the Eagles have made their first move to cut payroll.

Sexton certainly carried the Tide in the final 20 minutes after Alabama found itself trailing 41-31 at halftime.

Friday will mark the first time the Tide and Tigers have met in the SEC Tournament since 1999, which, coincidentally, was also the last time before this season that Auburn won a share of the SEC regular-season championships. "When they made their run, it bothered us more than it should have".

This one should be one of the more entertaining games of the day, as both teams like to push the tempo and find open shots in transition. "Don't worry about missing". I know we'll be fired up for that game.

"Our guys, I'm proud of them". "We're just going to go back and - it's a learning experience". Brown is coming off a game in which he scored 29 points against SC, so it should be a battle of two of the conference's most exciting guards when the Tigers meet the Tide.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Reveal Sex of Fifth Baby
Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit. During this conversation, Chip broke the news that the baby - his and Joanna's fifth - will be a son.

"We didn't play our best game at Auburn - and Herb Jones makes a difference for us", Johnson said. That just adds fuel to the fire for us. However, Sexton capped off a tremendous game when he connected on the game-winner to snap the Tide's five-game losing streak.

And it was confidence that this Alabama team had been lacking for of late. We've talked about it enough. "Just trying to dominate our opponents, respect our opponents".

Maten scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Georgia squeaked out a victory over Missouri in the second round of the SEC Tournament. Murray finished with those same 15 points and had 1 rebound after intermission.

It involved Alabama strength coach Lou Deneen. "We did what we wanted to do in the first half". I thought the zone was effective.

Hospital visits for opioid overdoses rose 30 percent nationwide — CDC report
Mary's in both Madison and Sun Prairie started a program where people who overdose are encouraged to seek drug treatment. And common painkillers don't have side effects, such as leading people into opioid addiction, the study concluded.

"At the start of the second half, they came down and flipped the table on us really quickly". Alabama outrebounded Auburn 37-35 on January 17 in a 76-71 win in Tuscaloosa. Head coach Jeff Graba feels the lack of consistency in his event lineups have made it hard for the gymnasts to trust in each other.
