Alabama women's basketball ends season with loss at SEC Tournament

DULUTH, Ga. | The University of Alabama women's basketball team ended its run at the Southeastern Conference Tournament with a 77-35 loss to No. 17 South Carolina on Thursday at The Arena at Gwinnett Center. The Crimson Tide finishes the season with a 13-18 record.

"Any time you don't shoot the ball well against a good team like South Carolina, you are going to have trouble," Alabama coach Wendell Hudson said. "We had open looks in the beginning of the first half and second half, but we just couldn't hit them. We played so hard last night and weren't able to play with that same intensity. It's tough to do that in back-to-back games."

South Carolina (24-6) was solid offensively, hitting 50.9 percent of its attempts while Alabama finished 24.6 percent from the floor. The Gamecocks also outrebounded the Crimson Tide, 47-31, and outscored Alabama, 40-14, in the paint.

Sophomore Daisha Simmons finished as Alabama's leading scorer with 10 points while freshman Nikki Hegstetter had a team-high seven rebounds in addition to eight points, both of which were season bests.

The Gamecocks were led by senior Ashley Bruner, who had 10 points and 14 rebounds, and sophomore Elem Ibiam, who finished with a game-high 19 points.
