Though it was a tough fight, the Alabama Men's Basketball team was able to withstand Murray State's Ja Morant's highlight reel of a performance. In case you missed the game, Morant scored 38 of Murray State's 72 points. The Crimson Tide were able to maintain their lead eventually built by Kira Lewis Jr. and John Petty by sinking 23 of 30 free throws.

Now 5-1 on the season the Crimson Tide have battled back from the Ball State loss well. the Freshman Lewis Jr. has been a main contributor, scoring 20 points Monday night, the third time he has thus far this season.

Color Analyst for the Crimson Tide Sports Network, Brian Passink joined The Jay Barker Show with Lars Anderson and Kerry Adams to recap the Alabama-Murray State game and provide his thoughts on the future of the season.

"Alabama was very fortunate to get a win," Passink told Hosts Jay Barker and Lars Anderson. "A really good win against maybe one of the top mid-major programs and teams in the country."
