Crimson Tide Results

Women's golf: Leading the field after round one, No. 14 Alabama had both a strong collective showing and individual performances in its first day at The Ally. Sophomore Benedetta Moresco set a school record for lowest first-round score, breaking her previous career-best mark of 67, with a 9-under par 63 which featured 10 birdies. The Crimson Tide returns for its second round of action and will tee off at 10:10 a.m. CT, paired with No. 7 Florida and Texas A&M.

Did you notice?

  • Former Alabama guard John Petty Jr. made the training camp roster of the Birmingham Squadron, the NBA G-League affiliate of the New Orleans Pelicans who signed him as a free agent.
  • Former Alabama offensive lineman William Vlachos was named the offensive line coach at Colorado. Vlacho, who spent time as a graduate assistant with the Crimson Tide, takes the job midseason after coaching staff moves by the Buffalos. 
  • An interesting statistical comparison of Derrick Henry's 2020 season versus now through seven games. For perspective, the former Heisman Trophy winner won the NFL rushing title last season.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

"For [them] to kind of say we haven't deserved their respect to call us Alabama, they call us `Red Team.’ And for their head coach to come out and say they can play against anybody, I don't think we're just anybody. We won two national championships in a row and we're undefeated right now. So we're not just anybody." – AJ McCarron after Alabama crushed Tennessee 45-10 on this date in 2013
