Most people might be thinking about football this weekend, but Alabama basketball gets started with the Tide Tipoff Event on Friday night. 

ESPN's Sportscenter visited with head coach Avery Johnson while they were on campus for Saturday's football game with Texas A&M. During the trip to the practice gym, Johnson competed against David Pollack of College Gameday and reporter Marty Smith in a 3-point shooting contest.

The former NBA champion showed that he's still got the touch. He hit 3 out of 5 shots with the final one just rimming out and took home the crown.

ESPN shared the shootout using Facebook Live and you can watch all three guys shoot below.


The Tide Tipoff Event gets underway Friday night at 6PM inside Coleman Coliseum. Fans will have a chance to get autographs with players before the men's and women's teams compete in a skills challenge, 3-point and dunking contest.
