Arthur Edwards was on the court for just over five minutes before he had to be helped to the locker room with an ankle injury.
With Edwards out of the lineup Jacksonville State went on a 13-6 run to take a five point lead. When Edwards emerged from the locker room he was limping, but he didn’t let that stop him from scoring a three seconds after rejoining the game.
“We didn’t dig ourselves such a big hole because of Arthur’s presence on the floor,” Johnson said. “[He tweaked his ankle, [and] came right in the game and made a three from the right corner and that kind of gave us some energy.”
Alabama trailed by two points at the half, but retook the lead and pulled away to beat Jacksonville State 67-59 in overtime.
