Alabama takes down No. 1 UNC in 4 OT thriller

Crimson Tide stuns No. 1 Tar Heels in an instant classic

It may only be November, but that fact doesn’t take away from the Alabama Crimson Tide knocking off No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels in quadruple overtime. The victory over UNC is Alabama’s first win against a top-ranked team in the country since 2004.

The game was back and forth the entire way with little-to-no separation between the two sides. Alabama’s Brandon Miller picked up his fourth foul early into the second half, but he played smart and was able to stay on the floor the rest of the game, which was massive for Nate Oats and the team. Miller struggled shooting all night as he was 4-21 from the field, but his presence was felt in a lot of other ways.

The decisive moment in the game came with nine seconds to go in the fourth overtime when Charles Bediako was called for goaltending which was eventually overturned to a block that give the Tide possession up by one. Jaden Bradley knocked down a free throw to put Alabama up 103-101 before UNC had to launch one final three that was nowhere near good.

The 2022 national title runner-ups were led by Caleb Love who had 34 points and nine rebounds. UNC lost to Iowa State earlier in the week and will have some regrouping to do, but this will be a dangerous side come tournament time.

This is a massive resume builder for the Crimson Tide!
