Reese Arrested Overnight
Alabama junior forward Alex Reese was arrested over night in Tuscaloosa for public intoxication. Reese was back in town after the SEC Basketball Tournament was cancelled yesterday due to concerns over COVID-19. He was arrested early Friday morning in the downtown area of Tuscaloosa.
Reese averaged 23 minutes per game this season for the Crimson Tide, scoring 8.8 points per game, 4.8 rebounds per game, 1.1 assists and 1 block per game. Reese has played at the Capstone for three seasons now and has seen his minutes and scoring go up each year.
Reese was held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $300 bond.
Reese released a statement on his arrest on Twitter Friday evening apologizing for his actions and promising to learn from this incident.
Reese struggled down the stretch on the offensive end of the floor, scoring double-digits in just two of the seasons final 11 games. He was 3-23 from the 3-point line over his final four games. The Crimson Tide lost seven of its final 11 games this season.
Alabama was hoping to go on a run in the SEC tournament to salvage what has been a tough season for the program. Alabama was on the court warming up for its first SEC Tournament game against Tennessee when the decision came down to cancel the tournament.
