When the calendar turned to March, the Alabama basketball program found itself with an opportunity few would have imagined back in October, but Alabama’s chances of receiving a spot in the NCAA Tournament took a hit not 48 hours into the month as the Crimson Tide fell to Arkansas 62-61 on Senior Night in Coleman Coliseum.
Team captain Retin Obasohan had the ball with a chance win or tie the game up for Alabama twice in the final minute of play, but both times the SEC’s No. 5 shooter, by accuracy, found himself unable to score the basket his team needed.
“The season’s not over,” Obasohan said. “We are still in a position to do far more than anything we could have possibly imagined. So yeah, like coach said, we go back to the drawing board and learn from this.”
Obasohan may not have gotten the game-winner, but a number of the senior’s shots did find the basket as he finished with a game-high 32 points while shooting 10-of-19 from the field and 3-of-5 beyond the arc.
