Junior Donta Hall and sophomore Dazon Ingram both registered double-doubles to push the Alabama men’s basketball team past Rhode Island, 68-64, Wednesday night at Coleman Coliseum. Hall and Ingram are the first Crimson Tide pair to record a double-double in the same game since JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell achieved the feat against Kentucky on Dec. 12, 2010.

Hall surpassed his career-high in rebounds as he corralled 14 rebounds against the Rams and also acquired his second career double-double, scoring 13 points. Ingram logged his third career double-double with 14 rebounds to go with 10 points.

 Three other Crimson Tide players reach double digits as sophomore Daniel Giddens set a career-high at Alabama scoring 12 points, while grabbing six rebounds. Freshmen Collin Sexton and John Petty rounded out the double-digit scorers for Alabama, as Sexton scored 11 points while Petty added 12 points.

Wednesday’s neck-and-neck game marked the second time this season the Tide had five players reach double digits. This was first achieved against Memphis in the season opener in Annapolis, Md. on Nov.10.
