TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - JaMychal Green scored on a tip-in with
.3 seconds left to lift Alabama to a 51-49, come-from-behind
victory over rival Auburn on Wednesday night.
Tony Mitchell drove to the basket and missed but Green sailed in
for the game-winner for the Crimson Tide (19-8, 11-2 Southeastern
Conference), which had trailed by as many as 15 points in the first
Auburn (9-18, 2-11), which had four players foul out, tied it on
Tony Neysmith's driving bank shot with 13 seconds to play.
Alabama overcame a nearly game-long offensive funk and
season-low 26.2-percent shooting performance to move to 15-0 at
home and avoid absorbing a big blow to its hopes of receiving an
NCAA tournament at-large bid.
The Tide closed the game on a 17-6 run after enduring long field
goal droughts to start both halves.
Green had 17 points and four blocked shots for the Tide.
