Recap |  Box Score |  Quotes

• Alabama and LSU met for the 169th time in series history, making the Tigers the third-most common opponent in UA program history. The Crimson Tide now owns a 102-67 lead in the all-time series and has now won six of the last seven games over the Tigers, and 11 of the last 14 overall.

• Alabama has won nine straight games over LSU in Coleman Coliseum. The last time the Tide lost to the Tigers at home came on Jan. 31, 2004.

Trevor Releford had two steals and moves into a tie with former UA great Mike Davis into fourth on the school’s all-time steals leaders (165).

• With 12 points on the night, Releford became the 42nd player in program history to reach 1,100 points in his career (1,104).

• Alabama held LSU to 57 points on the night. It marked the eighth straight opponent that the Crimson Tide has held the opposition to less than 60 points.

• Sophomore guard Trevor Lacey is the only player to have started every game on the year.

• Sophomore forward Nick Jacobs finished with 15 points on the night. When he scores eight or more points in a game this season, Alabama owns a record of 6-1 on the year. 

• Alabama has now held 15 of its 23 opponents this season, and eight straight SEC teams, to 60 points or below in a game. The Tide has a record of 11-4 when achieving the feat. In four seasons at UA under head coach Anthony Grant, the Tide has held teams to 60 or fewer points a total of 67 times, going 54-13 (.803) when achieving the feat 

• When looking at the numbers, there is no doubt fifth-year senior guard Andrew Steele plays a key factor for Alabama this season. The lone senior on this year’s team missed seven games recovering from a sports hernia. Over that span, the Tide went 2-5. However, UA is 13-3 when Steele has suited up this season, with all three defeats coming on the road.
