Alabama was led on the offensive end by John Petty III. The senior started off hot as he made three of his first four 3-point shots. He carried the Tide as he scored 22 points, with 6 assists and 4 rebounds.
Alabama's 84 points tonight is 22 points greater than the Tide's offensive output against Stanford in the opening game of the event. Six of the eight Bama players who saw action tonight drained a shot from deep.
