Basketball Loses In Three Overtimes
This was the first triple overtime game for Alabama since the 2012-13 season against LSU, and the seventh in program history. The Tide is now 4-3 in such games.
Alabama is now 3-3 on the season after dropping both its games in Madison Square Garden this week.
Junior forward Nick Jacobs led the Tide in scoring for the second straight game, putting up a career high in points with 23, as well as grabbing eight rebounds. Alabama had three other players in double figures with Trevor Releford putting up 21, Retin Obasohan scoring 18, and Algie Key contributing 10 points.
Trailing by two points with four seconds left in the third overtime, freshman center Jimmie Taylor managed to draw a foul while going to the rim, earning two free throws. Taylor missed both shots, and although the Tide got the offensive rebound, they couldn't convert to force a fourth extra period.
Drexel guard Chris Fouch led the Dragons in scoring with 19 points. He also added five rebounds and three assists.
The Tide returns to Coleman Coliseum for its next contest where it will square off against the North Florida Ospreys on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m. CT. The contest will be televised on CSS.
