USC chokes; Bama rallies to win

Mar 11, 2010 3:36:00 PM - thestate.com
NASHVILLE, Tenn. | Mikhail Torrance's 9-foot jumper broke a tie at 62 with 57 seconds left, and Alabama rallied from an 18-point deficit in the second half to beat South Carolina 68-63 Thursday in the opening round of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

Alabama (17-14) won a third straight game against an SEC opponent for the first time this season and beat the Gamecocks (15-16) for the second time in eight days after ruining South Carolina's Senior Night last week.

"We just played like a team that was trying to hang on, instead of one that was trying to make plays and pull away," USC coach Darrin Horn said.

The Tide will play No. 2 Kentucky in Friday's quarterfinals.

Torrance finished with 17 points, Justin Knox had 16 and JaMychal Green added 10 for Alabama coming off the bench.
