Tigers get rolled by Tide in Tuscaloosa

(WVUE) -

One play never makes the difference in a basketball game, but LSU's chances of upsetting Alabama on their home court went by the wayside after one missed dunk on one end ended up being an easy layup on the other.

The Tigers' miss turned into a Crimson Tide make and Alabama never looked back. That missed dunk my Duop Reath would've given LSU a 46-45 lead. Instead, the Tide went on a 26-3 run and ran away from the Tigers to a 80-65 win.

Forward Donta Hall was a human highlight film with dunk after spectacular dunk to lead Bama with 20-points. LSU's Daryl Edwards led all scorers with 21-points.

The Tigers will host Missouri on Saturday.
