Trevor Releford hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from half-court to give Alabama a 61-58 win over Georgia on Saturday.
Nick Jacobs stole the ball from a driving Charles Mann in the final seconds and lofted a pass to Releford, who quickly launched the long shot to prevent overtime, setting off a celebration on the court while officials briefly reviewed the play.
The Crimson Tide (20-11, 12-6 Southeastern Conference) lost a 14-point halftime lead before Releford's shot salvaged fading hopes of an at-large NCAA tournament bid. Alabama will be seeded fourth in the SEC tournament.
Mann scored on a jumper in the final minute for the Bulldogs (15-16, 9-9) but missed the subsequent free throw. Nemanja Djurisic rebounded and delivered it to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who buried the tying 3-pointer with 48 seconds left.
Mann stole the ball from Trevor Lacey and took it toward the basket before losing the ball amid contact.
