Alabama pulls away late for win over Virginia Tech

Hokies hit the hardwood at in Pittsburgh for big dance

CJ Massinburg had 19 points and Buffalo shredded Arizona's defense at a 55-percent clip for the program's first NCAA Tournament win.

In the First Round, the Crimson Tide defeated the No. 8 Virginia Tech Hokies, 86-83.

Virginia Tech led 43-41 after the first 20 minutes, but the scoring pace stalled in the second half before a closing flourish. That's when it started to go downhill, although you could make the case that the referees calling the first foul 22 seconds into the game was when it started. Until about midway through the second half, Nova was shooting 75 per cent from the field. "They kept making and kept making, and there was nothing we could do".

Petty made a deep 3-pointer with 2:08 to play in the game off a dish by Sexton to give the Crimson Tide (20-15) a five-point lead - a big lead in this game - and Sexton made a tough fadeaway jumper 30 seconds later to maintain the lead.

"We prepare, we prepare for these and we just shot the ball in practice", Petty said. We're going to try to do what we do best, and that's play defense.

Avery Johnson has spent plenty of time trying to convince Alabama freshman Collin Sexton to take ownership of his play and the men's basketball team, a message the coach has repeated frequently during the Crimson Tide's uneven season.

Buckeye facts: OSU also fended off a pesky mid-major in the first round, but in the process, its difficulties defending the 3-pointer were exposed with South Dakota State knocking down 13.

Justin Robinson scored 19 points for the Hokies (21-12), fouling out on a charge call with 48.0 seconds left that wiped out a bucket that would have pulled Virginia Tech within two points.

"We'll miss those guys, not just in the stat sheet".

"I'm really proud of our team".

Pirate facts: Seton Hall got off and running against N.C. State and proved why it will be a hard out in the tournament with two senior guards in Desi Rodriguez and Khadeen Carrington to go along with Angel Delgado in the middle.

"I shouldn't have had the towel in my hand, I think that made it look worse".

"I saw Jalen probably over 20 years ago", Johnson said, alluding to Brunson's father Rick playing in the National Basketball Association. Although the Hokies made a buzzer-beating layup, it wasn't enough.

From there on out, Tech was facing an uphill battle.

UA is coming off a magnificence performance, after taking down the No. 8-seed Virginia Tech Hokies in the second round in Pittsburgh. The Hokies had already been playing P.J. Horne for a decent amount of the game so they'd have some size, but now Bede, who picked up three fouls from playing earlier in the game, had to finish the last few seconds of the season.

"As of right now, you're upset that we lost, and that's kind of all that's really on the mindset right now", Wilson said.
