48 of 101. Gotta love that.
You got to love it when your bench out scores the entire roster on the other team!!
That was the proverbial “One legged man in an ass kicking contest!” Stackhouse’s face over there on the Vandy bench told it all. Coached in a couple of games like that and all you wanted to do was watch that clock run!!! People give Saban hell about holding on to timeouts. Don’t think Stack ever used a single one, even the use or lose timeout in the 1st half!!
 
Nice response from our basketball team last night in the old, "Plaid Palace." I really liked the defensive energy that was displayed for the game which resulted in some quick, easy transition baskets. If we can only bottle that intensity and play with that passion every game..... That is how you come back from a disappointing loss.
