Alabama Men’s Basketball Senior Guard Retin Obasohan Named SEC Player of the Week
Alabama men’s basketball senior guard Retin Obasohan has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday morning.
Obasohan, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound senior guard from Antwerp, Belgium, led the Crimson Tide to a 51-50 win at Clemson on Sunday night. Playing without starting point guard Dazon Ingram (season-ending foot injury) for the first time, Obasohan scored a career-high 23 points, including 15 coming in the first half, en route to the Tide's first four-game win streak away from home since the 2001-02 campaign. Obasohan was unstoppable as he scored nearly half of the Tide's 51 points (45 percent) on the night.
In addition to setting a new career-best scoring output, Obasohan also set new career marks for field goals made (9-of-16) and three-pointers made (4-of-7) in the Tide's fourth consecutive road win.
Obasohan and the Crimson Tide will return to action on Wednesday night when the Crimson Tide hosts Winthrop at 8 p.m. CT. It will mark Alabama’s first home game since a 105-93 win over Louisiana on Nov. 20. Tickets are available online at RollTide.com, by phone at 1-877-TIDETIX (843-3849) or at the Alabama Ticket Office, located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum.
