Kentucky vs. Alabama - 3/10/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Kentucky vs. Alabama - 3/10/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Alabama's Collin Sexton, center, is congratulated by teammates. Even when the Crimson Tide struggled to score in the first half, the freshman point guard provided enough to keep within striking distance.

After Auburn went 25-6 during the regular season, including 13-5 in SEC play, to earn the program's third-ever regular-season conference title, the Tigers locked up their first NCAA Tournament berth since 2003 and first postseason appearance since 2009, when Auburn made the NIT. Sexton then darted down the court and nailed a quick jumper to give the Crimson Tide a one point lead with 17 seconds remaining. And Sexton said they told him, in particular, "Every time I'm open, just shoot it". Alabama (18-14) led by 12 in the second half before the No. 8 seed Aggies (20-12) rallied. The last two points Thursday came on an end-to-end drive that Sexton finished by leaping off his wrong foot and finger rolling the ball into the basket just ahead of the buzzer to beat the Aggies.

In the second-round win over Texas A&M, Donta Hall and Dazon Ingram contributed double-digit point totals. The Crimson Tide will look to build off the momentum and add another win over a ranked opponent to their resume when they face No. 16 Auburn on Friday in an SEC Tournament quarterfinal in St. Louis.

"They definitely hit us in the mouth first, and I think that always hurts", Heron said. "They understand that there are not a lot of chances left, no matter how far you go". He finished the game with 23 points and 19 of the points came in the second half.

"I feel really good (about Texas A&M's NCAA Tournament chances)", Aggies Coach Billy Kennedy said. He's averaged over 18 points per game this season.

Alabama also has a victory over then-No. The Selection Show will be televised on TBS and will begin at 5:00 p.m. Defensively, Auburn basketball yields 73.1 points per game against the opposing teams.

Bulls Reportedly Won't Rest Starters Anymore After NBA's Tanking Message
Lopez was averaging 25.5 minutes per game for the Bulls before the All-Star break, but has not taken the court for the team since. Paxson says the league communicated with the team after the All-Star break about those two players and their diminishing roles.

After Sexton hit the second of his three-straight 3-pointers coming out of the half, it was clear he was not going to be stopped.

Alabama got freshman forward Herb Jones back in the lineup for the SEC Tournament. Hall took a nasty fall late in the second half but was able to walk off the court. The Tigers drew up a play for their leading scorer, Kassius Robertson.

Up next, the Crimson Tide will face the victor of No. 4-seed Kentucky and No. 12-seed Georgia. The trend continued throughout the contest: Missouri made a run, Georgia responded. "We work on a lot of those end-of-game situations when they're exhausted at the end of practice, and they executed it. Braxton (Key) got him the ball on target and then it's just a foot race".
