Texas A&M Basketball: 3 takeaways from loss to Alabama in SEC Tournament

Texas A&M Basketball: 3 takeaways from loss to Alabama in SEC Tournament

Guard play is one of the most important facets once tourney time arrives and Florida has some game changers in their backcourt with senior point guard Chris Chiozza leading the way, so as much as I wanna take Bruce Pearl's Tigers, I think the Gators cut down the nets in St. Louis.

In about a four-second span an apparent gutsy Texas A&M victory unraveled into a gut-wrenching 71-70 loss to Alabama on Thursday in the Southeastern Conference basketball tournament at Scottrade Center. The freshman's entire skillset was on display in the victory, from his 3-point range to his speed to his penchant for flash. The Tigers never did slow Alabama, which scored 50 points in the second half in a complete reversal from the opening half.

And while we know what we'll be getting from the guards, it's the frontcourt that should decide the game. They just added fuel to the fire for Mustapha and for me and Jared and for all of my other teammates that were left off. Though not against Sexton, Starks picked up his second foul with 8:46 remaining in the half, and was subbed out for the duration of the half.

In the second-round win over Texas A&M, Donta Hall and Dazon Ingram contributed double-digit point totals.

"Everybody focuses on the losses", Johnson said.

But whomever they get in next Friday's draw, which is free from geographical or group stage restrictions, will not concern them.

Regardless of if they win Friday, the Georgia Bulldogs must be commended for making it this far as a No. 12 seed. We talked about dominating. Once we got control of this game today, that's what it's all about. Murray finished with those same 15 points and had one rebound after intermission.

Although they were only playing with seven scholarship players, Auburn was still able to turn a five-point halftime lead into a full-on blowout. "We did what we wanted to do in the first half".

The reward for recruiting Sexton figures to be Alabama's first NCAA bid since 2012.

Everyone expected this game to feature a highly-anticipated showdown between Kentucky and Missouri, but Yante Maten and company had other plans. Given his blazing quickness driving the ball, a reliable outside shot basically makes him illegal.

I think we'll see their mindset be somewhere in the middle, and given how focused Auburn should be, I'll go with the Tigers to advance. That's really all it is.
