Retin Obasohan, who had been playing the off guard spot with Dazon Ingram at point, had to spend some time at the point as Bama adjusted its lineup. Obasohan came through in a big way and the senior was rewarded by being named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week.
Obasohan, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound fifth-year senior from Antwerp, Belgium, led the Crimson Tide to a 51-50 win at Clemson on Sunday night. Obasohan scored a career-high 23 points, 15 in the first half. Obasohan scored nearly half of the Tide's 51 points (45 per cent) on the night.
In addition to his personal best in scoring, Obasohan also set new career marks for field goals made (9-of-16) and three-pointers made (4-of-7) in the Tide's fourth consecutive road win. It is Alabama's first four-game win streak away from home since the 2001-02 season.
Obasohan and the Crimson Tide will return to action Wednesday night when the Crimson Tide hosts Winthrop at 8 p.m. CST. It will mark Alabama’s first home game since a 105-93 win over Louisiana on Nov. 20. Tickets are available online at RollTide.com, by phone at 1-877-TIDETIX (843-3849) or at the Alabama Ticket Office, located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum.
The SEC Network will televise the game.
