Alabama’s Upset Bid Falls Short
Posted by Mike on December 5, 2007
Despite having no real point guard (due to Ronald Steele’s knee injury) and having little inside presence outside of Richard Hendrix to neutralize Roy Hibbert, the Crimson Tide managed to fight until the very end tonight; until the final two minute, neither team led by more than 5 points. Key three point shooting from Jessie Sapp and Dajuan Summers, as well as Hibbert’s offensive rebounds and a few ill-advised passes, proved to be too much for the Crimson Tide, and the Hoyas eeked out a victory in the inaugural Big East/SEC Invitational.
It’s too bad. If Bama had pulled off the the victory, our first true upset of a top 5 team this year, I would have posted a clip of the famous “Alabama Man” just for the occasion. Instead, you’ll just have to settle for the French version.
