Men's Basketball Falls at Vanderbilt, 81-77 The Alabama men's basketball team dropped its first decision in its past five games, falling to the Vanderbilt Commodores 81-77 on Thursday night at Memorial Coliseum. The Crimson Tide now stands at 15-8 (7-2 SEC) following the loss while Vanderbilt improves to 17-6 (5-4 SEC).

Junior forward JaMychal Green notched his 19th career double-double with a game-high 23 points, including 19 in the second half, to go along with a game-high 10 rebounds. Sophomore forward Tony Mitchell added 22 points while freshman guard Trevor Releford added 11 points.

"We've hung our hat all year on our ability to defend," UA head coach Anthony Grant said. "Today we had a tough time defensively. Vanderbilt did a great job. They shot the ball well from the field, they shot the ball well from the three-point line, they did what they had shown all year with their ability to get to the free-throw line. We couldn't overcome that at the end."
