Alabama earned its fourth postseason appearance in the past six years, playing in its third NIT in that period. Bama finished the season with a 19-15 record.
Riley Norris won the Outstanding Freshman Award while Jimmie Taylor was named the Most Improved Player. Retin Obasohan won the Hustle Award and was also recognized for being selected to this year’s SEC Community Service Team.
In addition to recognizing the entire team and staff, special recognition was given to the team’s three departing seniors: Randolph, Cooper and Dakota Slaughter.
Randolph, who was the recipient of one of two Student Academic Achievement Awards, was the program’s first Academic All-America after being named to the second team in his senior season. He exits as the all-time leader in games played and is a member of the 1,000 point club. Cooper joined Randolph as a member of the 1,000 point club and leaves Alabama with the fifth most games played.
Slaughter also took home a Student Academic Achievement Award after earning the Student-Athlete Award at last year’s banquet. The former walk-on has a 4.0 GPA while double-majoring in Spanish and marketing.
