Posted: Updated:

Sophomore guard Rodney Cooper hit the game-winning three-pointer with 13 seconds remaining, while sophomore Trevor Lacey poured in 20 points, to lift Alabama to a 65-62 victory in the semifinals of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.

With the win, the Crimson Tide moves to 3-0 on the year for a second straight season.

Lacey connected on 7-of-13 shots from the floor and 4-of-7 from beyond the arc to account for his second 20-point game of the young season (had a career-high 23 points vs. South Dakota State on Nov.9).

 Junior Trevor Releford finished with 14, while Cooper had 12.

The Crimson Tide will move on to the championship game on Friday night (7:30 ET on ESPN2) and will face the winner of the Villanova-Purdue, currently in progress.
