Alabama’s Collin Sexton will only have to sit out one game


Big news for Alabama: star freshman point guard Collin Sexton will only have to sit out one game for his role in the college basketball bribery scandal. Sexton will have to miss the Crimson Tide’s season-opener vs. Memphis tomorrow, but will be eligible Tuesday night vs. Lipscomb.

Sexton’s eligibility was in question because he was recruited by Alabama basketball administrator Kobie Baker, who accepted bribes from Rashan Michel and a cooperating witness to steer players to using their services in the NBA. According to the indictment that came out earlier this week, Sexton’s father met with Baker and Michel. Sexton also had a relationship with former AAU coach Christian Dawkins, who was also arrested and named in a separate complaint in the FBI probe.

Simply put, it looked like things could be really bad for Sexton, but the NCAA had decided otherwise, which is huge news for not only Alabama, but also SEC basketball because he’s really, really good.

    NIke owns NCAA and AAU, they’re clearing out Addias scum. No Nike school (or players that went there) will be punished.

    Yeah, he has talent; but, he’s a hotdog…could never have played for Cal.

      A lot of rival fans still like to roll their eyes when we say Cal doesn’t recruit certain guys.

      That first super class he had here, Lance Stephenson wanted to be part of it, but Cal wouldn’t offer him. He was a top 10 or 15 recruit, but he was also one of the “taker” players Cal referred to, the kind of player who only cares about his minutes and touches and isn’t teachable. I remember stories about him being a troublemaker the year he spent in college. Stephenson has since gone on to do well in the NBA and even has some awareness about his own behavioral issues (he did some memes about him blowing on Lebron’s ear), but he’s a prime example of the kind of problem player Cal simply chooses not to recruit.

      We have some guys who clearly are unhappy and transfer out, but for the most part, despite bringing in tons of ball dominant guys every year, we don’t hear about fights and chemistry issues the way a lot of teams do.

    So much for that Cam Newton loophole they closed.

    Maybe the idiots in Louisville aren’t as delusional as we all thought when it comes to Bowen.
