Obasohan leads Alabama's 65-57 comeback win over Auburn
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Retin Obasohan scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and led Alabama's comeback with a late surge in a 65-57 victory over rival Auburn on Saturday.
The Crimson Tide (17-11, 8-8 Southeastern Conference) rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to snap a two-game losing streak. Obasohan hit a 3-pointer and mid-range jumper in the final 2:17 and blocked a shot from 6-foot-7 Cinmeon Bowers.
The Tigers (11-17, 5-11) had staged their own rally after trailing by 10 points but couldn't pull off the regular-season sweep.
Obasohan had 10 points over the final 6:45 for the Tide after Arthur Edwards and Donta Hall turned in big games when he wasn't carrying the load.
Edwards had 15 points, including three 3-pointers. Hall had a career-high 10 points and eight rebounds before fouling out.
Cinmeon Bowers led Auburn with 12 points and 13 rebounds while Bryce Brown scored 14 on 4-of-6 3-pointers.
