Men's Basketball Falls to Oklahoma in Season Opener, 82-73

And Season Schedule


DALLAS - The Alabama men's basketball team fell to Oklahoma, 82-73, in both teams' season opener at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Junior guard Algie Keyled the Crimson Tide with 20 points on 7-of-8 shooting in his UA debut.

"Obviously disappointed with the loss, but you have to compliment Oklahoma," UA head coach Anthony Grantsaid. "I thought they did a really good job attacking when we had a big lead in the first half and I thought they did a good job on the offensive glass all night."

Sophomore guard Retin Obasohan tied his career high with 14 points. Senior guard Trevor Releford had 12 points while struggling with foul trouble for much of the game. Junior forward Rodney Cooperhad his second career double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Alabama got out to a 26-10 lead thanks to a 20-3 run and led 41-40 at half, but was outscored 42-32 in the second half. The game remained tight until there were six minutes left in the game when OU reeled off 10 unanswered points to pull ahead for good.

"We had our opportunities in the second half. The 10-1 run in the last six minutes is probably what decided the game," Grant said. "You have to give them credit and we just have to turn around and get ready for our next game."

The contest featured seven ties and 12 lead changes in the back-and-forth affair.

The Sooners were led by Buddy Hield's 19 points, while Ryan Spangler added 15 points and 12 boards.
