The Rebels did indeed hold a 4-point lead with 0.5 left on the clock. Here’s the proof. I see some folks bemoaning a narrow home win over Alabama State. I’m not here to tell you things are rosy for the Rebels, but I will tell you Alabama State is pretty good. Best SWAC team I’ve seen. More than one or two good athletes. What they do isn’t complicated. They just spread the floor, look for good matchups and execute. At least that was the case last night. Sometimes good execution by an opponent signals defensive issues. There’s some of that going on too.
