With less than three minutes remaining, Alabama was clinging to a one point lead over the Auburn Tigers. A loss would’ve put Alabama’s NCAA Tournament chances on life support.
Coach Avery Johnson looked at senior Retin Obasohan and told him to take over.
“At the end of the game I was telling him keep the ball in your hands and make something happen,” Johnson said. “Make two or three guys double-team you.”
Obasohan had only scored nine points when he threw up a 3-pointer to give his team some breathing room. He followed that up with four more points to finish with a game-high 16 points in Alabama’s 65-57 victory over Auburn.
