Alabama’s Barrage From Deep Crushes Islander’s Shining Moment
In Alabama's 96-75 rout of Texas A&M Corpus Christi, the Tide's 3-point attack ended the Islander's dance.
Alabama shot 15/33 (45.5%) from behind the arc, the 5th-highest clip this season.
It wasn't just one player who was hot from deep, but eight seperate players who hit one from deep, including walk-on Delaney Heard. This marks a program high for Alabama.
All-American Brandon Miller also did not make a bucket from three this afternoon, as he went 0/3 over 19 minutes.
After struggling from deep to end the regular season, Alabama has started to find their groove, something that will be key as Alabama searches for their first Final Four appearance in program history.
For Alabama's Round of 32 matchup they will take on the Maryland Terrapins, who hold opponents to 32% from three, the 78th best mark in the nation and just below Alabama's average 3-point percentage of 33.8.
Hitting the three ball will be huge for Alabama down the stretch, because Nate Oats' crew is unbeatable when the deep shots are falling.
