Alabama basketball finish with just three players after entire bench ejected
Three-on-five basketball? That is exactly what Alabama encountered against Minnesota on Saturday.
The entire Crimson Tide bench got ejected while they had one player foul out and another get hurt, so they played three-on-five basketball in the second half of an 89-84 loss to Minnesota.
It started with four-on-five basketball which was weird enough, but then to see three-on-five boggles the mind.
This is certainly something that will not be seen again anytime soon.
Reese, Schaffer, Hall, Jones, Fuller, Giddens & Johnson Jr were all ejected from the game for rushing the floor. Now Ingram just called for his 5th. #Alabama will play with 4 players for the final 11:37 trailing 61-52.-- Alabama Men's Basketball (@AlabamaMBB) November 25, 2017
#Alabama trails 74-60 with 7:44 left to play. Tide has three players on the court...Sexton, Smith & Norris. Ingram has fouled out and Petty is now out of the game.-- Alabama Men's Basketball (@AlabamaMBB) November 25, 2017
An incredible effort from the Crimson Tide, who played with 3 players over the final 7-plus minutes. Sexton finishes with 40. Final score: Minnesota 89, #Alabama 84.-- Alabama Men's Basketball (@AlabamaMBB) November 26, 2017
