TUSCALOOSA, Ala. | The Alabama men's basketball team used a big second-half run and was able to hang on to defeat No. 13/16 LSU, 70-67, Wednesday night inside Coleman Coliseum. It marked the Crimson Tide's fourth win over a ranked team this season (4-1) with all four victories coming against top-15 teams.

Junior guard Jahvon Quinerly added 17 points off the bench while senior guard Keon Ellis had 12 points, a team-leading eight rebounds, and three steals in the victory.

AUBURN, Ala. |
Auburn might not be ranked No. 1 yet, but the second-ranked Tigers certainly played like the best team in the country at times Wednesday night.

Auburn throttled Georgia 83-60 at home to earn their 14th straight victory and improve to 17-1 on the season. 

Led by 15 from Walker Kessler, six different players scored in double figures. The Tigers shot 46 percent from the field, only turned it over eight times, and the 52 points in the first half were a season-high, topping the previous mark of 47 set against Yale.
