Grant wants Bama players to finish better

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Anthony Grant wants his team to say "enough is enough."

The Crimson Tide let a 13-point lead slip away in a 76-70 loss to Georgia over the weekend. Grant said Monday that kind of late-game letdown has been a recurring theme for his team.

He says the players seem to adapt a mentality of just trying to hold on when they have a lead late in the game instead of putting opponents away.

Grant says it's disappointing to still be playing like that this late in the season. He says Alabama sometimes plays like two different teams from the first 30 minutes to the last 10 when the Tide is leading.

Alabama has three one-point Southeastern Conference losses and also blew a 23-point second-half lead in losing to Mississippi.
