Wrapping up a big senior year, Trevor Releford was honored by the SEC on Tuesday.
Though he fell short of the player of the year award, the Alabama guard was named to the first-team all-league. He averaged 18.8 points a game as the driving force behind the Crimson Tide all season.
The All-SEC honor was the fourth for Releford. He was first team as a junior, second team as a sophomore...
Trevor Releford scored 24 points and the host Crimson Tide ended the Razorbacks’ six-game winning streak with a dominant first half.
Shannon Hale added 18 points off the bench for Alabama (13-18, 7-11 SEC), which held the Razorbacks (21-10, 10-8) to one field goal in a nine-minute span of the opening half, outscoring Arkansas 21-3 en route to a 39-16 halftime advantage. Levi Randolph...
Make no mistake about it, Alabama’s 83-58 romp over Arkansas Saturday was great fun. And it was oh so fine for Trevor Releford to add to his resume as a deserving Southeastern Conference Player of the Year candidate on Senior Day. But was it in Bama’s best interest to earn the No. 10 seed and the first day bye that comes with it for this week’s SEC Tournament?
Things may be changing for the better for Trevor Releford as a candidate for Southeastern Conference Player of the Year. Although the award usually goes to the star of the best team, or at least one of the top teams, despite a poor season by Alabama, Releford has been outstanding.
Arkansas Basketball: They’re hungry
Arkansas is hungry. They want it and they want it bad.
What is “it” exactly? It’s easy; they just want to win. They finally have that winning mentality that Arkansas basketball has lacked for several years.
Arkansas ran over Ole Miss Wednesday night in Bud Walton Arena. The final score was 110-80 but it wasn’t that close. With 12:01...
For much of this season, Alabama has been unable to win because Trevor Releford couldn’t get any scoring help. In Oxford Wednesday night, the Tide didn’t get enough from Releford—who seemed less than full strength -- until it was too late.
Alabama's record says plenty about the season's challenges.
But so do the latest national rankings.
The Crimson Tide (11-16, 5-9 Southeastern Conference) enters Wednesday night's visit to Mississippi (16-11, 7-7) already assured of its first losing regular-season mark since 1999-2000, Mark Gottfried's second season.
Most of the blame can go toward deficiencies...

So if Trevor Releford put out a “Help Wanted” sign, it looks like Levi Randolph said, “I’m your man.” It didn’t mean Releford could take the night off, but it was mostly The Randolph Show in Coleman Coliseum as Alabama took an 80-73 win over Missouri Saturday night.
Trevor Releford seems to be marching to the beat of a different drummer. While Releford has been all-star caliber this season, his Alabama teammates haven’t kept up as the Crimson Tide is headed for its worst season in decades. The good news is that Bama will be on its home court Saturday. The bad news is that Missouri, which beat Alabama by 21 points a month ago, is the opponent.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Senior guard Trevor Releford scored 27 points, 25 of them coming in the second half, but it was not enough as the Alabama men’s basketball team lost a heartbreaker on the road to Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina Saturday afternoon, 67-66.
Trevor Releford is almost a lock to repeat as a first team All-Southeastern Conference Player. The feel good story of the year in SEC men’s basketball would be if Releford is selected SEC Player of the Year. But that’s not likely because Alabama is not a very good basketball team. And history says it will have a little worse record over the next week.
Trevor Releford doesn’t play at Kansas like his older brother, Travis, used to, but he makes the most of his opportunities at Alabama. The 6’0” guard hit a game winner from downtown on Tuesday night against Marshall Henderson and Ole Miss with less than a second remaining in overtime.
Releford (18.7 PPG) definitely has an NBA future and will undoubtedly be invited to at least...

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Trevor Releford made a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 0.6 seconds left to lift Alabama to a 67-64 victory over Mississippi on Tuesday night.
There’s something about a basketball game having two halves, and about Alabama sometimes playing well in just one of them this season. Trevor Releford didn’t have a great first half against Ole Miss Tuesday night, but what a second half. And particularly what a final second. His three-point shot with :00.6 gave Bama a 67-64 win over the Rebels in Coleman Coliseum Tuesday night.

It was a relatively slow week in college basketball and the landscape in Southern California didn't see any drastic changes. San Diego State continues to be by far the best team, while the Bruins are still struggling to close out games. However, it's the final week before conference play starts in both the Big West and the Pac-12 and a few final tune-up games may prove key...
