Alabama MBB overcomes second-half rally by Jackrabbits to improve to 7-1




 

Alabama men's basketball knocked off South Dakota State on Saturday night by a final score of 78-65. The Tide were led in scoring by freshman forward Noah Clowney. The South Carolina native scored 22 points while grabbing nine rebounds en route to the Tide's victory.

Early on, it looked like Alabama was going to run away. The Tide had a 37-17 lead in the first half. However, that lead was cut to 42-35 by halftime.

In the second half, the Jackrabbits were able to overcome the 7-point deficit to take the lead. It wasn't the ideal second half that Oats and his coaching staff had in mind. Nonetheless, freshman forward Brandon Miller and redshirt-sophomore Nimari Burnett combined to score 17 of the Tide's 36 points in the second half to lead them to victory.

The Tide will return to action next Saturday when they travel to face the No. 1-ranked Houston Cougars. The game is set to tip-off at 3 p.m. EST and will be airing on ABC.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow the Alabama men's basketball program as the season progresses.
