No. 8 Alabama recovers from slow start to beat Georgia 89-79

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Alabama looked ordinary when it was missing its strength as one of the nation's best 3-point shooting teams.

When the long-range shots started falling, the Crimson Tide again looked like the Southeastern Conference champions.

Herbert Jones had two baskets in a 9-0 run to open the second half that gave No. 8 Alabama the lead and the Crimson Tide beat Georgia 89-79 on Saturday.
