Alabama hits its stride as strong 3-point shooting and double-double from Olaniyan overwhelm LSU

It’s hard to tell who was more excited for Riley Norris’ four of six start behind the arc, the junior who knocked them all down or the Alabama bench players that rushed out to congratulate him during the ensuing timeout. “He gave all our team confidence and get them going and I think it’s really something that we needed,” Bola Olaniyan said. One player that seemed to feed off of Norris' hot start was Ar'Mond Davis. He came off the bench and finished three of six beyond the arc in the Crimson Tide’s 90-72 victory over the LSU Tigers (9-17, 1-13 Southeastern conference). The Crimson Tide (16-10, 9-5 SEC), powered by 28 total first half points from Norris and Davis scored 51 points against the Tigers in the first half.
