Tuscaloosa, AL (Sports Network) - Trevor Releford scored a game-high 21 points as the Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over the Auburn Tigers, 61-43, in SEC action at Coleman Coliseum.

Trevor Lacey added 12 points and three steals for Alabama (19-9, 11-3 SEC), followed by Retin Obasohan and Nick Jacobs with 10 points apiece, the latter clearing a game-high 10 rebounds as well in the team's fifth win in six tries.

The Tigers (9-19, 3-12) were led by Rob Chubb who dropped in 13 points on 6- of-11 shooting from the floor as the squad lost for the sixth straight outing and the 12th time in the last 13 contests overall.
