Sexton scored 21 of his 31 points in the closing stanza after the Tide trailed 41-31 at the half. He hit a trio of 3-pointers to jumpstart the offence as Alabama stormed back with a 28-3 spurt to start the second half and outscored its archrival 50-22 after the break. And when I run, my teammates found me, and I was open.

"Talk is cheap. I say that all the time", Johnson said. "Don't worry about missing or anything else".

Tyree Crump led the Bulldogs (18-15) with 17 points.

And in the second half, the offense took over.

Over the first 25 games, the Tigers jetted to a 22-3 record and as high as No. 7 in the polls before the McLemore injury.

Different site, same old Kentucky in the SEC Tournament.

"It was a tale of two halves". "We knew when we came in this tournament we had to win games, and we wanted to because we have a lot to prove".

As things now stand, Alabama is probably tracking towards being a No. 11 seed that misses the play-in game. In addition to the scoring uproar off 10-for-16 shooting, Jared Harper's high school teammate finished at 7 rebounds and a 5-for-5 clip at the free-throw line, playing 34 minutes on the floor. I think he may have clipped me and then he said something to me. "For us to be involved in a five-game losing streak and weather all of that adversity and be where we are right now speaks to the character and the core of our team. We just weren't able to build on it by winning three games here and winning our next championship". But they also have three Quadrant 3 losses, and unless they win the SEC tournament, they are going to enter Selection Sunday with 15 losses to their name.

"Just as I was walking to my locker room, I just had to - a gentleman just was in my path, and I had to negotiate - try and negotiate around him", Pearl told reporters in St. Louis after the game.
