Alabama basketball standout Collin Sexton put the team on his back.
On Thursday evening against the Texas A&M Aggies, the Crimson Tide were trailing by one point with less than five seconds remaining in the game. That’s when the freshman sensation took the inbound pass and took the ball coast-to-coast to beat the buzzer, giving Alabama a 71-70 victory.
Alabama now advances to Friday’s quarterfinals where the team will face No. 1 Auburn.

That’s how you get the job done.
Sexton is expected to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft following his freshman campaign where he is a projected lottery pick, so Alabama fans have to appreciate moments like this while they can.
And if Sexton continues to create magic like this throughout the postseason, he will be a player that Crimson Tide fans will never forget.
