Could this be Lebo's last stand, Mitchell makes Barn pound sand

We took control midway through the 2nd half and never looked back. 73-61 is your final.

Balanced scoring, led by Mitchell with Hines being a force down low helped us pull away from the University of Auburn. Torrance made some key FTs late (and also pulled down 12 boards), Davis made some dagger 3s, Knox showed some of his post up moves from last year, and Hillman played with intensity (even though his shot wasn't falling).

We defended the 3 well, outrebounded them 41-29, forced 14 turnovers, and held them to 35.5% from the field. The only gripe I have is we turned the ball over way too much in the 1st half.

Alias and DJC were there so they'll have a better perspective on the game... I'm happy so see this team win their last 2 games. Next up, the SECT on Thursday vs South Carolina.

I'll try to post a little more tomorrow. I just got back and I am tired. That Tebow clone has to be the worse official I've ever seen. There was absolutely no way to explain the officiating in this game, and we benefitted from at least as many of the bad calls as we were harmed.

I liked that Coach Grant let Cage start his last game at home. It was nice to see him score a basket. It was no Jason Reece dunk, but it was one more basket than I'll ever score for the Crimson Tide and you could see that his teammates enjoyed it as much as he did.

Flash's wise guy said Lebo is going to be fired and api will hire Rick Williams. He can coach and has a reputation for buying players too, so we might be in for some trouble.

without green against usc we out-rebound them 46 to 29 in their house.

with green at home, he plays 14 minutes, scores one point and if he made a significant contribution otherwise, it's not mentioned here, theh tuscaloosa news or the birmingham news.

i'm looking for direction here.

(thanx in advance)
