After a made three-pointer by the Crimson Tide with .10 seconds left in the game to put Alabama down by one point, Anthony Collins was fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws. Alabama had three attempts at the basket, but failed and lost at the buzzer to the Bulls by the score of 66-64. Lengthy freshman center, John Egbunu, came up with game ending block for the Bulls. Collins made 3-of-4 free throws in the last 15 seconds to improve to 6-2 on the season.
"I think we've grown up quite a bit," Heath said after the game. "I'm seeing a lot of things coming together for our team."
Freshman Chris Perry had another double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds on 6-of-10 shooting and John Egbunu finished with seven points, six rebounds and three blocks.
Highflying forward Victor Rudd had an apparent leg injury late in the second half, but it turned out to be a cramp. Rudd finished with 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting and seven rebounds to lead the Bulls' frontcourt.
Alabama falls to 4-4 on the season after the loss tonight. The Bulls next play against Florida Gulf Coast on Dec. 17 at 7:00 p.m. inside the Sun Dome.
