Alabama 79, South Carolina 70: 20/20 Hindsight

The Crimson Tide basketball team picked up a surprise win last night without its best player, JaMychal Green. Only seven players saw action, but the Tide overcame an 11-0 deficit to start the game to pick up its second SEC road win of the year. Alabama is now 15-14 overall and 5-10 in SEC play. Bama will close the regular season at home against Auburn on Saturday before likely facing Florida in the opening round of the SEC tournament next Thursday. Unfortunately, due to time restraints, we won't have our usual initial impressions piece, so instead we'll leave you with some of what the media is saying about Bama's surprise win...

This time, it was someone other than the Alabama Crimson Tide that couldn’t hold a double-digit lead.

Two slumping teams combined for 29 turnovers, but most surprising was the way Alabama dominated South Carolina (46-26) on the boards. The Crimson Tide's Chris Hines alone had a career-high 14 rebounds, which doubled any Gamecocks player.

Justin Knox and Mikhail Torrance each had 17 points and Alabama, playing without leading scorer JaMychal Green, spoiled Devan Downey's final South Carolina home game with a 79-70 victory Wednesday night.
