Alabama shooting an SEC best 45.5% from behind the arc


Watch out for this guy tonight.

One thing the Cats will have to do to avoid an upset tonight? Clamp down on the perimeter. Alabama is shooting 45.5% on threes in conference play, making them the deadliest SEC team from behind the arc. Their biggest weapon? Sophomore guard and suspender enthusiast Trevor Lacey, who leads the SEC in three-point field goal percentage at 45.5 percent (35-of-77) this season. In addition, he has knocked down a league-best 55.6 percent (10-of-18) of his three-pointers in SEC play.

Alongside Lacey are Trevor Releford, Rodney Cooper, Levi Randolph and Andrew Steele. Releford is averaging 16.2 points per game off 49% of his shots from the field and he and Lacey combined for 29 points in Alabama’s 50-49 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.

Shut. Them. Down.

    If Trevor Lacey is leading the SEC in three point % at 45.5%, how then is Alabama as a team shooting 46% from three? Doesn’t add up.

    Best 3 point shooter on team shoots 45.5% from three, yet alabama is shooting 46% from three? Doesn’t make sense.

    #2 45.5% – 46% WHATEVER! I just don’t want to get schooled by a dude wearing rainbow suspenders named “Lacey”… All he needs is some athletic tape on his glasses.

    A little clarification for you all…

    Lacey is shooting 45.5% from deep on the SEASON. In SEC play, he is shooting 55.6% and the team is shooting 45.5% from beyond the arc. Makes perfect sense.

    Kinda Hard to knock the Suspender wearing fella, He was one of our most desired recruits a few years back, with the same picture used on those “Let’s get Trevor Lacey” Posts!

    And that means absolutely nothing.

    Alabama is shooting 35.5% from 3 for the season.

    4 games is a small sample. Use the entire season.

    Another recruit Cal missed on…Shabazz, Bennett, Harrell, Wells, Oriaki, Stokes, Lacey…

    Wearing that stuff is funny for the first minute. The rest of the day you just look like an idiot. The stuff people do to entertain others…

    Bama, on the entire season, is shooting .363 from the 3. Kentucky, also on the season, is shooting .357 from the 3.

    Bama averages a 2 more steals per game and slightly better freethrow shooting but UK leads them in every other category. Inclucing 12 more points per game.

    #11 Lacey was not very good last year, who would you have taken him over?

    How long can we tolerate this poor recruiting? I wonder what our recruiting classes have been ranked since this coach took over. Worth looking into, I’d say. What say You?

    Wasn’t Andrew Steele at Alabama when Tubby won the title?

    Cal has missed on a lot of recruits. What’s up with that? Why doesn’t he sign the top 50 players every year? There needs to be an investigation.
