Alabama, now sitting at 18-14, will take on the SEC's top team, Auburn, on Friday.

Sexton took the inbounds pass with 4.4 seconds remaining from underneath his own basket, raced down the floor and softly lifted a finger roll over the outstretched arms of the Aggies' defense to give the Tide the buzzer-beating win.

"We got stuck against their zone in the second half but persevered", Johnson said. A few more wins could ensure their trip to the NCAA Tournament this spring.

After a scuffle between freshman guards TJ Starks and Collin Sexton on Saturday that led to the ejection of Starks and a technical foul on Sexton, A&M head coach Billy Kennedy emphasized the importance of not letting extracirruclar activities affect their play. It was looking more like the Tide's 22-point win over Texas A&M in January than the two-point loss they suffered at A&M to end the regular season. "The series is tied 1-1, so may the best team win". Not a great look for an Auburn team that has already made history but would like to make a lot more starting next week.

Sexton had a lights-out game, registering his 13th 20-point contest of the season, scoring a game-high 27 points, to go along with five assists, three rebounds and one steal. 5 Texas A&M on December 30, and it will have another opportunity to impress the selection committee when it faces top-seeded Auburn today.

"I know their size and length really bothered us the first time we played them", Pearl said. The Alabama Crimson Tide are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.7 rebounds per game.

Trailing Auburn by 10 points at halftime, Alabama turned the tide over the final minutes and sprinted away to an 81-63 win over the Tigers.

Georgia has looked like the team we thought it could be during the first two days of the tournament, with Maten finally getting consistent help around him.

Tennessee vs. Mississippi State, 6 p.m. His brother, Michael, a projected lottery pick who played just two minutes in the season opener and later had surgery, finished with 12 points and 8 rebounds, but shot just 5 for 17 from the field. Quinndary Weatherspoon and his brother, Nick, each finished with 15 points for the Bulldogs.
