While Alabama's football team was busy losing to rival Auburn on Saturday, Alabama's basketball team was going through turmoil of its own.

This isn't the the Iron Bowl but Alabama and Minnesota had to be separated just now after Nate Mason was ejected for talking smack.

The narrow defeat, however, came after Alabama's entire bench was ejected, a player fouled out and another sprained his ankle, leaving Johnson with just three players. At this moment, every player on Alabama's bench took a few steps onto the floor before catching their mistake.

With a small crowd watching at the Long Island University facility and the game being streamed live on Facebook, four players scored than ten or more points for Alabama - John Petty, Donta Hall, Dazon Ingram and Collin Sexton.


While they made it competitive against all odds, the Crimson Tide did eventually fall short.

Chaos followed, with several players getting into a shoving match and drawing the Crimson Tide bench onto the court.

Sexton finished with 40 points on 12-of-22 shooting, and earned plenty of praise from Minnesota coach Richard Pitino, who said Sexton "could beat a whole team by himself".

Minnesota meanwhile, looked somewhat confused regarding how to both attack and defend with such an advantage, rarely doubling the ball on defense and turning down many open jumpers to feed the ball inside where Alabama could apply pressure.
