The Alabama men's basketball team (11-3) beat Georgia Tech (7-7) by a score of 73-48 in Philips Arena Tuesday night. 

"I thought we came out and played with great energy," UA head coach Anthony Grant said. "We came out defensively and set the tone. We struggled a little to start the second half, but finished up well. This was a good win for our team."

Alabama forced 22 turnovers on the way to a 25-point win over the Yellow Jackets. After leading by 18 at the half, the Crimson Tide extended its lead to as many as 27 in the second half, keeping the defensive pressure on Georgia Tech through to the end. A total of eight Alabama players tallied at least one steal, earning 14 on the night with freshman guard Trevor Lacey leading the way with three.

Sophomore guard Trevor Releford scored a game-high 17 points while junior forward Tony Mitchell added 14 points to go with a game-high six rebounds. Junior Andrew Steele, in his first game this season after rejoining the team earlier this week, scored nine points in 12 minutes of play.

Alabama returns to the Peach State this Saturday at 6 p.m. CT to open Southeastern Conference play against the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens, Ga. The game will be televised by FSN.
