Alabama basketball forced to play 3-on-5 after entire bench gets ejected

Here is how it went down. During the Barclays Center Classic game, Alabama’s Collin Sexton and Minnesota’s Nate Mason started jawing at each other, resulting in a double technical.

More conflict shortly ensured, involving Minnesota’s Amir Coffey and Dupree McBrayer and Alabama’s Riley Norris and John Petty, leading to the ejection of the entire Alabama bench.

With 12 minutes left, Alabama was forced to play with just five players against Minnesota.

Shooting Guard John Petty landed awkwardly on a three-point shot, leaving head coach Avery Johnson with just THREE eligible players against Minnesota.
