Alabama sophomore Nick Jacobs had a team-high 16 points and five rebounds as the men’s basketball team defeated Stillman, 76-68, in Coleman Coliseum on Tuesday night. “I thought Stillman came in and did a very good job with the tempo that they played at in the first half,” head coach Anthony Grant said. “I thought in the first half, we were sloppy from an offensive standpoint.
