Alabama pulls away for 65-44 SEC victory over Texas A&M

Ricky Tarrant scored 15 points and Retin Obasohan sparked a decisive second-half run to lead Alabama to a 65-44 victory over Texas A&M on Tuesday night.

The Crimson Tide (11-3, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) won its fifth consecutive game in the league opener for both teams.

The Aggies (9-4, 0-1) repeatedly chipped away at double-digit deficits but never led in the game.

Obasohan scored all 12 of his points in the final 10 minutes to help the Tide secure its fifth straight win in SEC home openers.

Levi Randolph and Michael Kessens each had 10 points and nine rebounds for Alabama.

Freshman Peyton Allen led Texas A&M with 13 points while leading scorer Jalen Jones sat out with a sprained ankle. Alex Caruso had six assists.

The Aggies tied the game early in the second half but were dominated from that point.
