Bama Loses Second in a Row to Dayton


It wasn’t a pleasant homecoming for head coach Anthony Grant and his Alabama Crimson Tide. In the Georgetown loss, it was the Alabama offense that struggled; last night it was the defense who took the night off.

The good news is that the Tide shot 50 percent from the field; bad news is that Dayton shot over 50 percent from the three-point line (10-19).

The Tide was down by as many as 17 points, but cut the deficit to four in the second half before the Flyers went on another run to end the game.

“They came out with great passion,” Grant said of Dayton. “When we were down 14-16 our pride and passion kicked in. It should have been that way for 40 minutes.”

JaMychal Green again got in foul trouble early on in the game which stalled the inside game for the Tide; Green still ended up with 12 points. Tony Mitchell added 18 points and Trevor Releford had 13 points.

“I think we had them,” Alabama's Trevor Releford said. “We had the same five guys out there and they were gassed, but they knocked down some shots.”

The Tide will try to bounce back Sunday afternoon vs. the University of Detroit at Coleman Coliseum.
