Collin Sexton’s buzzer-beating finger roll likely sends Alabama to tourney (Video)
March Madness is once again officially upon us, and the dramatic buzzer-beaters are piling up as players look to lead their teams to NCAA Tournament bids and beyond. For Alabama, it was Collin Sexton who played the role of hero.
With the Crimson Tide trailing Texas A&M by one and 4.4 seconds remaining in their second round SEC Tournament Game, Sexton went coast-to-coast and converted a finger roll at the buzzer.

To make the moment even more dramatic, Sexton’s basket likely punched Alabama’s ticket to The Dance.
A lot of players would have pulled up well beyond the 3-point line, so Sexton deserves a ton of credit for his clock awareness. The Tide may have won yet another college football championship, but they can’t let Nick Saban’s team have all the fun.
