LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Keon Ellis had 22 points, Jaden Shackelford contributed 15 and No. 10 Alabama defeated Miami 96-64 in the fifth-place game at the ESPN Events Invitational on Sunday night.
Alabama (6-1), which also got 13 points each from JD Davison and Juwan Gary, found itself in the consolation bracket after losing its tournament opener to coach Rick Pitino's Iona team. Davison added 10 assists.
"We took an `L' the first game but it's not the end of the world," Ellis said. "You just got to learn from it and move on. I think tonight showed how we bounced back from that."
