Bama Tips Off Season with 24 Point Win


Jahvon Quinerly provided an offensive spark for the Tide, who shot 23% as a team from behind the arc. Jaden Shackelford also had a big game for the Tide, putting up 18 points and a career high 12 rebounds. Herbert Jones recorded had a double-double, putting up 12 points and 12 rebounds, and a number of hustle plays

There were a few bright spots for the Tide, with the debuts of James Rojas and Keon Ellis providing an instant spark of the bench on both ends of the floor. The Tide also responded well to adversity after the Gamecocks cut the lead to 10 in the early second half— but after a 14-1 run led by Jaden Shackelford and John Petty, the Tide exploded to a 70-43 lead.

While the numbers didn’t look great, the Tide had plenty of open looks— leaving many on the board. Another key of improvement Nate Oats will look for as the rotation will start to take more shape: Who will step more offensively to create more spacing and hit those shots, as well as make key hustle plays to keep possessions alive?

Alabama (1-0) has a break for Thanksgiving, before traveling to Asheville, North Carolina to take on Stanford in the Maui Invitational, as Jacksonville State (0-1) will travel to take on Florida Atlantic on Friday.

Next Game: vs. Stanford (Maui Invitational) 9:30 ET/8:30 CT (ESPN)
