Alabama rebounds with 61-43 win over Auburn

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Trevor Releford had 21 points and Alabama used a strong second half to win a rematch with rival Auburn 61-43 on Tuesday night.

 

The Crimson Tide (19-9, 11-4 Southeastern Conference) held the Tigers (9-19, 3-12) to 30 percent (15 of 50) shooting and a season-low in points.

 

Alabama scored 38 points in the second half, 24 more than the team managed in the first meeting - a 49-37 loss 20 days earlier that remains Auburn's lone win during a 1-12 stretch.

 

Releford turned in a nice follow-up to a career-best 36 points in a triple-overtime loss at LSU. He made 4 of 9 3-pointers.

 

Trevor Lacey added 12 points while Nick Jacobs had 10 points and 10 rebounds for his second double-double. Retin Obasohan also had 10 points.

 

Rob Chubb led Auburn with 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Leading scorer Frankie Sullivan was 1-of-9 shooting for six points.
