Alabama Holds On, Wins 74-72 at Vandy

The Crimson Tide basketball team hasn’t been great on the road this season, but went to Nashville and took a victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores by a score of 74-72 on Tuesday night. Coach Nate Oats said this week that “I don't care how good an offensive player you are, if you don't play defense you won't play,” then called on a starting group of Keon Ellis, Jaden Shackelford, JD Davison, Noah Gurley, and Charles Bediako.

The game started off with both teams ice cold. At the first media timeout the Tide led 5-4 and the teams were a combined 2-12 from the field.
