Alabama 62, Tennessee 50


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Trevor Lacey scored 18 points and had four steals to lead Alabama to a 62-50 win over Tennessee on Saturday.

Trevor Releford finished with 13 points off the bench for the Crimson Tide (17-9, 6-6 Southeastern Conference), who ended Tennessee's four-game win streak. Andrew Steele had 10 points and seven assist.

The game was tied at 32-32 after Jarnell Stokes' three-point play with 17:14 left in the second half. But Alabama answered with a 20-3 run to take control of the contest, claiming a 52-35 lead.

Releford scored nine points during the run for the Crimson Tide, who moved into a tie with Tennessee and LSU for fifth place in the conference.

Jeronne Maymon scored in double-figures for the eighth straight game with 20 points for the Volunteers (14-13, 6-6). Trae Golden had 12 points.

Alabama, which ended a two-game losing streak, played without two suspended starters, JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell, and Green's back-up Nick Jacobs who suffered a mouth injury and had a root canal on Thursday.

Earlier, Alabama went on a 19-4 run to take a 27-17 lead on a field goal and a free throw by Carl Engstrom at the 2:35 mark. Consecutive 3-pointers by Golden pulled the Volunteers to within 27-24.

The score was 29-25 at the half. Maymon scored 12 of Tennessee's first 17 points to keep the Vols close. Lacey had 12 for the Crimson Tide.
