MBB: Tide blows 16 point lead, loses to Purdue 71-65

Box score

Now a win would have been a major upset, as Purdue is fifth in the country.  (Thought personally, I never take any Big Ten team but Michigan State seriously unless they've done something really impressive to prove themselves.)  But this is disappointing.  Alabama led 46-30 early in the second half, and 53-41 with twelve minutes to go.  From that point on, they were outscored 30-12.

Purdue jumped out to a 9-1 lead, but that was followed by a 28-9 run by Alabama to pull into a sizeable lead that held for much of the game, as Purdue seemed unable to handle the Tide's quickness.  But from that twelve-minute mark, Alabama couldn't get anything going on offense, took some bad (and quick and stupid) shots, and kept giving up offensive rebounds.

Mikhail Torrance had his usual fine game with 18 points, but was shut down late by Purdue defensive specialist Chris Cramer, and none of the other perimeter players stepped up, especially after Senario Hillman fouled out with eight minutes left.  JaMychal Green had 16 and eight rebounds, and Justin Knox scored 14 off the bench.
