Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama has talent and undeniable potential.
It has beaten Tennessee by 28, won at Florida by 18, Texas A&M by 22, Oklahoma, Auburn and Rhode Island. It’s an impressive resume of wins.
But for as good as Avery Johnson’s team has looked at times this season, it hasn’t done enough to give me the confidence that it’s going to be that good in any one particular game.
The Crimson Tide has lost at Vandy, gotten destroyed at Georgia, lost by 16 to Texas and at home to Central Florida.
That can be life when you’re led by a freshman. Collin Sexton has been fantastic but John Petty is coming around as his diaper dandy sidekick. Petty has scored double-figures in three consecutive after floundering around for three weeks.
‘Bama needs his shooting and his general scoring if it’s to be as good as it can be!
The first game Auburn lost this season was to Alabama. Petty erupted in for his finest game of the season, which included 27 points. ‘Bama was playing without Sexton and Petty took initiative.
Petty went 8-for-13 from three in that game, while the rest of his team hit just 2-for-10. Alabama still only assisted on 12 field goals, despite missing their most ball-dominant player and scorer.
But Auburn shot below 40 percent for the first time all season, something it hasn’t done again since shooting 31 percent in its last loss to South Carolina.
The Tigers are deep but that depth will be tested even more down the stretch after losing Anfernee McLemore to a torn ACL in the last game.
McLemore is one of six players who average 20 minutes per game or more for Bruce Pearl. He was averaging over seven points per game one extremely efficient shooting (53 percent from the field and almost 40 from three).
