The Alabama women’s basketball team used a complete team effort that saw every Crimson Tide player who entered the game score at least one basket in its 105-16 exhibition win over Auburn-Montgomery at Coleman Coliseum.

The Crimson Tide was led by sophomore Brittany Davis’ 19 points, while senior Cierra Johnson also added 10 points in the win Sunday. 

Eight other Alabama players contributed at least five points. Alabama scored 41 straight points from the middle of the second quarter into the third quarter before allowing the Warhawks a basket.

“It was good today to see a different colored jersey,” Crimson Tide coach Kristy Curry said. “Obviously, it’s hard when you’re going against yourself in practice day-after-day. As far as getting a lot of people minutes, I thought that was quality.

"To shoot 18-for-18 from the free throw line regardless of the situation is always a positive. We took some positives away; we’ll take some clips away too that we need to continue to grow and improve. Overall it was just really good to be in a real game environment.”

In her debut, Davis was 7-of-12 (58 percent) from the floor, and hit three 3-pointers.  

Johnson was a perfect 8-of-8 from the stripe.

The Crimson Tide’s defense held the Warhawks to only 11.3 percent (6-of-53) from the field, while shooting an efficient 60 percent (39-of-65).

Additionally, 70 of Alabama’s 105 points came from players off the bench, while holding AUM to only five bench points.

Alabama will open the regular season on Nov. 6 against Hampton. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. CT inside Coleman Coliseum and will be broadcast on SEC Network+.
