TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It was a trying week for the University of Alabama, but on Saturday things got a little brighter. In front of 12,988 fans at Coleman Coliseum, the Crimson Tide rebounded from back-to-back losses to beat rival Tennessee, 62-50.

After the game, coach Anthony Grant was noticeably pleased, eager to praise his team's tenacity on the court.

"I thought we played with a lot of fight, with a lot of hunger," Grant said. "... I think our guys are focused on trying to get wins and be the best they can be.
