Nashville, Tenn. (AP) When John Petty Jr. gets his shot going, he’s almost impossible to stop.
Wednesday was one of those nights as the junior guard scored 23 points, including five 3-pointers, and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Crimson Tide to a 77-62 win at Vanderbilt.
“He just catches fire sometimes,” Alabama coach Nate Oats said. “I mean, he might be the best shooter I’ve ever coached in my life. Once he gets going and gets in rhythm, shoot, that thing looks like it’s going in every time he releases it.”
