With the Crimson Tide trailing Texas A&M by one and 4.4 seconds remaining in their second round SEC Tournament Game, Sexton went coast-to-coast and converted a finger roll at the buzzer.
This buzzer-beater was the ideal way to end this game, which was a back-and-forth affair in the final two minutes. The Tide were able to advance in the SEC Tournament after an incredible finish that included a buzzer beater by freshman star Collin Sexton.
The guard finished his incredible performance with 27 points, five assists, and three rebounds. The Aggies tied the game with a three with 1:14 remaining and what ensued next was instant classic material. Sexton jumped off his right foot and rolled it in with his right hand.
However, Starks would answer Sexton yet again. His shot came after A&M's T.J. Starks hit a 3 with 4.1 seconds to play to give the Aggies the lead.
But Sexton raced up the floor, split two Texas A&M defenders and sunk the clinching floater as time expired.
The Tide started the game strong and it seemed as if they would finish strong as well.

Whether the win gets Alabama in or not depends on who you talk to.
