At the halfway mark of their contest with the LSU Tigers, the Alabama men's basketball team leads by a score of 59-22 in Coleman Coliseum. So far freshmen Brandon Miller and Noah Clowney have led the charge for the Tide while the Tigers appear to be asleep at the wheel.

The Tide offense has been unstoppable so far today. 59 points in one half of basketball is unheard of at the collegiate level. The 37-point lead is the largest halftime lead in program history. To properly put the Tide dominance in perspective, consider this: LSU has 22 points, and so does Miller.

Miller has drained six 3-point shots and rebounded one ball on the offensive side. Transfer guard Mark Sears has put eight points on the board, and freshman guard Jaden Bradley has assisted his teammates in scoring five times.


The Tigers haven't done much offensively, hence the massive deficit. No player on LSU's team has eclipsed ten points yet. KJ Williams leads the Tigers in scoring with eight points. The Tigers did not manage to score a single point within the paint until nearly 18 minutes into the first half, but the threes have been falling at a competent rate when they are taken.

Defensively, the Tide has been completely dominant. They are forcing LSU to take bad shots and frustrating the Tiger ball handlers. The Tigers have only turned the ball over five times, but have struggled to take clean shots. The Tide is currently out rebounding the Tigers 19-6 underneath LSU's basket.

Miller has without a doubt been the star of the show. If he keeps playing at the level he is, this could turn into one of the ugliest in-conference beat downs in SEC history.
