After missing the season opener because of his alleged involvement in a college basketball scandal, freshman phenom Collin Sexton has been showing the college world why he’s worth breaking a few rules for (I’m kidding Alabama fans!).
On Tuesday night, the former Ballislife All-American, who Jay Williams called the “nation’s most impressive freshman,” scored a game-high 29 points, including the final five and then played some great defense on Erick Neal (16 PTS & 12 ASTS) in the final seconds to preserve the win and keep Alabama unbeaten.
“Since I’m out there, I might as well do something while I’m out there,” Said Sexton said after the game. “Every time I step on the court, I have to give my all.”
Sexton also had 4 assists to go with his career-high 29 points (8-15 FG, 11-14 FT). He had 25 (11-16 FG) and 22 (7-10 FG) in his previous two games.
ERICK NEAL HIGHLIGHTS
Neal’s 16 and 12 gave him his third consecutive double-double. The senior point guard is now averaging 17 points and 11 assists.
