Ar’Mond Davis started his night 0-for-3 past the arc, but he didn’t let that stop him from attempting a fourth in the final minute of the first half.
His confidence in his shooting abilities paid off. That shot ended up being the first of four good 3-pointers for the newcomer as Davis finished with a team-high 17 points and six rebounds in Alabama’s 91-71 victory over Faulkner in the team’s only exhibition game.
“He thinks he can make it from anywhere, and you saw a little bit of a snapshot of it tonight,” coach Avery Johnson said.
The 3-pointer Alabama’s coach really wanted to discuss was the one Dazon Ingram made in the second half. Ingram’s first and final good 3-pointer came against Southern Mississippi.
“[At that point] I had been on him to shoot it for seven games,” Johnson said. “Hopefully that will build some confidence, because you got to remember with him being a triple-double threat if he can make 3’s then he takes his game to a different level.”
Ingram finished with 15 points and five rebounds for Alabama.
