  • The SEC Tournament is shaping up to be the best one in years

In their second meeting in the last five days, the Aggie men's basketball team (20-12, 9-9 SEC) lost to Alabama (18-14, 8-10 SEC), 71-70, in the second round of the SEC Tournamenton Thursday afternoon.

Alabama broke a five-game losing streak that had left the Crimson Tide without a win since February 13, when their NCAA hopes were strong.

And if Sexton continues to create magic like this throughout the postseason, he will be a player that Crimson Tide fans will never forget. Starks previously scored 23 points in a game at Auburn on February 7.

"When we played them at home the first game (in December) that lineup with Donta and Galin playing together had a pretty decent plus-minus so we went with it".

"I'm as proud of them as I've been since I've been here at Alabama for obvious reasons", Crimson Tide coach Avery Johnson said after freshman guard Collin Sexton hit a floater at the buzzer to beat Texas A&M.

OMP has also supplied the quick-release steering wheel, mounted on a racing column and equipped with a paddle shift system. If you aren't convinced by now that this vehicle means business, the large rear wing should make that extremely clear.

Alabama was in a must-win position after losing the final five games of the season. His play came after Texas A&M's T.J. Starks hit a 3-pointer that produced the Aggies' first lead since the middle of the first half. "Collin Sexton made a terrific play to advance", Auburn coach Bruce Pearl told reporters Thursday evening in St. Louis. Joe Lunardi now has Alabama as one of his "Last Four In". "We had moments when we looked like a dominant team in certain stretches".

The Crimson Tide are sitting on the bubble, and Sports Illustrated's Michael Beller has them in the "Next Four Out". "They showed some maturity".

A solid SEC tournament was already being anticipated with the improve of the league during the regular season but through three games, the tournament has already been better than advertised.

"Everybody focuses on the losses", Johnson said.

The Crimson Tide rank fifth in blocks per game (5.8) while the Aggies rank 186th in blocks allowed per game (4.3). "Let's see what happens (Friday)".
