With four seconds left on the clock, freshman Collin Sexton charged down the court and put the ideal touch behind the ball to drop in the buzzer-beater to take down Texas A&M, 71-70, in the second round of the 2018 SEC Tournament Thursday afternoon at the Scottrade Center. The Tide were able to advance in the SEC Tournament after an unbelievable finish that included a buzzer beater by freshman star Collin Sexton. Mustapha Heron is averaging 16.6 points and 5.5 rebounds while Bryce Brown is averaging 16.4 points and 1.8 assists.

With 1:17 remaining in the game, Texas A&M junior guard Admon Gilder netted a three-pointer to tie the game up at 65-65.

It should have been the game-winner, but questionable defense on the final possession allowed Sexton to get the full length of the court for the actual game-winner.

However, Starks would answer Sexton yet again.

"We didn't play our best game at Auburn - and Herb Jones makes a difference for us", Johnson said.

Not having Starks was costly for the Aggies, who have very thin point guard depth after losing Duane Wilson to injury and J.J. Caldwell to dismissal earlier in the season. Davis leads in rebounds with 8.7 while Wilson tops in assists with 4.0 per game. Davis picked up his fourth foul with 12:31 to go in the game, and was subbed out with 12:31 remaining in the game. Despite the loss, Sexton was the game's leading scorer with 23 points. Sexton finished the second half with 18 points (7-of-11) from the field, and led the game in scoring with 27 points. But man, it stinks to go out of the conference tournament like this. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. CT and will be broadcasted on ESPN.
