TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Kira Lewis Jr. scored 25 points and Alabama awarded 4th place for the first loss of the season with the match 83-64 on Wednesday night.
The Crimson Tide (Southeast Conference 9-7, 2-2) led their domestic competitors. The tigers (January 15, 3-1) had a miserable shooting night and left No. 7 San Diego state (18-0) when the national team was unbeaten in the end.
It was Tide's first win on a Top 5 team since a 79-57 defeat at home followed by None. 5 Texas A&M on December 30, 2017. This is also largely one-way.
Lewis scored 17 points in the second half for Alabama. He is 8 out of 14 from the pitch and makes 8 out of 9 free throws.
Herbert Jones had 14 points and 12 rebounds. Alex Reese scored 13 points and James Bolden got 11 points for Tide.
That's a seasonal low for Auburn, who have won 27 of the 28 matches since the season before the Final Final Four.
Isaac Okoro leads Tiger with 13 points. Austin Wiley had 10 points and 13 rebounds and Jamal Johnson also scored 10 points.
Auburn closed within 50-47 on three pointers back from Johnson midway through the second half, but the attempt back has deflated from there.
Auburn: Missed the first 10 three-point attempts and completed only 20 of the 63 shots (31.7%). The tigers fired 25% from a three point range (7 out of 28) and made 17 out of 30 fouls.
Alabama: Won seven of the last 10 matches after starting 0-2 against the ranked teams. The Tide gave fans a huge reason to cheer for the coach …
