Sexton's buzzer beater lifts Alabama over Texas A&M, 71-70

The SEC Tournament is shaping up to be the best one in years Collin Sexton: Hits game-winner to cap huge performance Thursday

The Tide should be in the tournament, which would give the SEC a total of eight teams.

Herbert Jones, who played previous year 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.

The Texas A&M Aggies (20-11, 9-9 SEC) meet the Alabama Crimson Tide (17-14, 8-10 SEC) in the Southeastern Conference Tourney at Scottrade Center. A pitbull-type guard; many have compared Sexton to Russell Westbrook. The Tide may have won yet another college football championship, but they can't let Nick Saban's team have all the fun.

To say that Johnson was pleased with that response would be an understatement. "They played great and made a lot of shots, but this is a neutral base".

TDP MPs also continued to protest outside the Gandhi Statue in Parliament, where they could be seen chanting "We want justice". The leaders held placards which said "Save Andhra Pradesh Save Democracy" and "Follow Alliance Dharma ".

But if Alabama wants to be 100 percent and leave no doubt heading into Selection Sunday, it needs to beat the Tigers. 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 problem with being in that group is that other results nationally can still have a huge impact on your tournament hopes. John Petty led the Crimson Tide with 27 points on 9-for-14 shooting (8 for 13 from beyond the arc) while Auburn (25-6) didn't get more than 12 points from any player on the roster and failed to get off what could have been a game-tying 3 in the final seconds.

"I feel like we showed that we've got heart", Sexton said.

In their last five games, Alabama is 1-4 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs. That just adds fuel to the fire for us.

"We've got to come ready, we've got to come prepared, and we just have to play our hearts out", Auburn forward Desean Murray said. "I feel like this is going to start something even more special for us". Despite the loss, Sexton was the game's leading scorer with 23 points. "I just know we wouldn't". He hosts the Marching to Madness podcast, which features interviews with coaches around the country.
