Bama's D makes LSU frown, Tide takes them down

Final score 66-49. I think we were up as much as 26 (52-26) before letting off the gas a little with under 12 to play.
ESPN box score

A complete tail-kicking from beginning to end. LSU led 2-0 and 6-4, but that was about the highlight of the game for them. JaMychal Green dominated inside, Hillman and Torrance dished out the assists, Knox cleaned the boards, and the D stifled Tasmin Mitchell all day. That's 2 dominating road wins in a row... they must have channeled the football team's performance in the 2nd quarter of the BCSCG.

We had terrific ball movement the entire game... finding the open man outside or getting it to Green, Knox, and Hines inside with good position. That's as good as I've seen us pass the ball in about 5 years. We also did a GREAT job of getting a hand in LSU's face and out rebounding a taller squad.

If you live anywhere close to Tuscaloosa or live near a SEC opponent's gym you should go out and see them play. They bust their tails and leave it all on the court. I plan on making it to 2 games... maybe more if my schedule permits.

3 road teams won today (us, South Carolina, and M$U)... not often that happens.
