Alabama Basketball rolls over Florida, claims top spot in SEC

Alabama received some bad news prior to Tuesday night’s home game with Florida as Jahvon Quinerly missed the game, and possibly the next one, with what was only called a medical condition. Quinerly has been playing very well in SEC play. Undeterred, Coach Nate Oats’ team showed a ton of character and defeated nemesis Florida by a score of 86-71 in Coleman on Tuesday night. It was the first home win over the Gators since 2006, breaking a streak of eight straight and 10-12.

The win propels the Tide into sole possession of first place in the SEC with a 3-0 mark, and the team improved to 8-3 overall.
