TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Freshman Tony Mitchell scored 17 points
and Mikhail Torrance added 15 to lead Alabama to a 73-51 victory
over North Florida on Wednesday night.

Mitchell, who also had seven rebounds, left the game with 9:25
to go because of a swollen left knee. He hit the floor hard after
going up for a rebound and is day-to-day.

North Florida (1-5) led 31-30 at halftime and 35-34 with 17:56
to go.

Alabama (5-2) used a 35-11 run to pull away and held the Ospreys
without a field goal for the final 4:03.

The Crimson Tide hit a season-high nine 3-pointers - going
9-for-20 from long range - and made five of their first 11.

North Florida, which entered the game with the third-best
3-point shooting percentage (48.4 percent) behind Iowa State and
Kansas, was 4-for-14 from beyond the arc (28.6 percent).

Andy Diaz had 14 points and Stan Januska added 13 for North
