What Had Happened Was: 2/8/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Alabama basketball, not known for its ventures on the hardwood, walked into Colonial Life Arena on Tuesday and left its four-overtime game against No. 19 South Carolina with a 90-86 victory.
The hero for the Crimson Tide was sophomore guard Riley Norris, who scored six of his 11 points in the final overtime, including the go-ahead free throws with 56 seconds left.
This win was even more impressive because South Carolina standout Sindarius Thornwell had a career night in points (44), rebounds (21) and a conference-record 25 free throws, passing “Pistol” Pete Maravich’s SEC record of 21.
