Alabama Men’s Basketball Comes Up Short Against Arkansas, 76-73
Despite a late rally, the Alabama men’s basketball team fell short to Arkansas, 76-73, Saturday evening at Coleman Coliseum. Four players reached double figures as sophomore Braxton Key led the charge scoring 16 points to go along with five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal.
Alabama (17-12, 8-8 SEC) ended the game making five of its last six shots, but Arkansas’ 36-28 rebounding edge throughout the game along with shooting 50 percent from three-point range (7-of-14) in the second half made the difference.
Other double-digit contributors included freshman Collin Sexton and John Petty scoring 15 points and 14 points, respectively, while sophomore Dazon Ingram put up 13 points. Junior Donta Hall collected eight rebounds while blocking four shots for the Crimson Tide on defense.
Alabama will play its final home game of the season when it welcomes the Florida Gators for Senior Night on Tuesday night at 6 p.m CT. Tuesday’s game will broadcast live on ESPN. In the last meeting, the Tide captured a 68-50 win at Florida back on Feb. 3.
