No. 16 Alabama eclipsed the century mark for the seventh time this season, beating LSU 109-92.
Very little defense was played for the Crimson Tide, but it didn’t matter. Alabama did what it has done most of the season, which is showcase its prolific offense and hope to outscore the opponent. On Saturday against LSU, it worked again.
Here are some takeaways from the game.
Alabama Attacks the Offensive Glass
Alabama stayed active on the glass, especially on the offensive end of the floor. The Crimson Tide pulled down 43 total rebounds with 19 of their rebounds on the offensive end. Alabama used the 19 offensive rebounds to create 28 second-chance points to just eight for LSU.
Big Game For Pringle
In just his second game back after serving a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team, Nick Pringle delivered his best offensive performance of the season. Pringle provided a spark off the bench with a season-high 17 points. Pringle also was active on the inside, pulling down five rebounds.
Big Game for Wrightsell
Latrell Wrightsell, Jr. has settled in as one of Alabama’s dynamic scorers this season. Wrightsell had a career game on Saturday against LSU, dropping a career-high 21 points. The guard did most of his damage from deep, hitting six three-pointers. To go along with his 21 points, Wrightsell completed the double-double and pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds.
Three-Point Shooting Was Lights Out
When the three-pointers are falling for the Crimson Tide they are a hard team to beat, and that’s exactly what happened on Saturday. Alabama attempted 44 three-pointers, connecting on 18 of the attempts. Wrightsell led the way with his six made three-pointers, followed by Mark Sears and Rylan Griffen hitting four three-pointers each.
