Alabama basketball unable to overcome sluggish second half against UCF

A completely out-of-sync Alabama had its worst offensive half of the season in second half of its 65-62 loss to UCF. The Crimson Tide only scored 26 points and blew a six-point halftime lead in the final 20 minutes of the game. UCF went on a 15-2 run over the span of seven minutes and 24 seconds to give the team a commanding lead. During that run, Alabama could not get anything going, and it showed by the way the team responded.
