Basketball Tops Tennessee in Overtime Thriller, 65-60

The Alabama men’s basketball team defeated the Tennessee Volunteers 65-60 in overtime Saturday at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville.
Sophomore forward Tony Mitchell led the Crimson Tide with a career high 24 point performance.
“You have to give credit to all our guys,” UA head coach Anthony Grant said. “Everybody on our team who got on the court did something in the course of the game that made a difference tonight to give us the win.”

Alabama failed to score in the final four minutes of regulation, allowing Tennessee to tie the game and send it into overtime. The Tide scored all ten overtime points from the free throw line, not missing from the charity stripe in the extra period.
