Hoops News: Bama Beats Troy - Hendrix SEC Player of the Week

This state is so football crazed that we often forget we have a basketball team until football season is over. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Crimson Tide's victory over Troy 84-72 in their season opener last Friday.

Richard Hendrix had a massive performance registering a double double of 22 points and 23 rebounds (23 rebounds!) His outstanding performance earned him SEC Player of the Week honors. Demetrius Jemison also managed a double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. The game also marked Coach Mark Gottfried's 250th career win as a head coach.

The Crimson Tide take on Mercer tonight at 6:30 in Macon, Georgia. The game is not televised. You can listen on the radio via the Crimson Tide Sports Network or follow live stats via Mercer is currently 1-0 after knocking off #18 ranked USC 96-81.
