Desperate for a win to keep them in the mix to make the NCAA Tournament, Alabama had a tough task in front of them Thursday against Texas A&M. Then, Collin Sexton came through in the clutch with a game-winner that will likely be enough to get his team into the tourney.
Here’s a look at the stunning shot that helped the Crimson Tide claim a 71-70 win over the Aggies in the SEC Tournament.
This buzzer-beater was the perfect way to end this game, which was a back-and-forth affair in the final two minutes. Both teams sunk clutch shots, and TJ Starks had just hit a three to give A&M a 1-point lead. But in the end Sexton had the magic touch when he needed it the most.
Now Alabama will prepare to face Auburn in the quarterfinals on Friday, likely already having secured a berth in the NCAA Tournament. This shot was particularly a special one for Sexton, who was initially ruled ineligible this season due to an NCAA probe.
