Countdown to the Crimson Tide’s 2019 opener:
Did you notice?
• Collin Sexton's streak of 23-plus point games ended at seven, coming up two short of Allen Iverson's NBA rookie record. However, he still had 20 against the Clippers and became just the 26throokie in NBA history to have 1,000 points and 100 3-pointers in a single season.
• Speaking of the Clippers, JaMychal Green had eight points and nine rebounds in 17 minutes.
• Remember running back B.J. Emmons? He’s finally back on the playing field at Florida Atlantic.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:
"The biggest mistake coaches make is taking borderline cases and trying to save them. I'm not talking about grades now, I'm talking about character. I want to know before a boy enrolls about his home life, and what his parents want him to be." – Paul W. “Bear” Bryant
