Guard Riley Norris scored 18 points, 13 of which came in the second half, as Alabama cruised past Stetson 83-60 at home on Thursday in its final nonconference game of the season.

The Crimson Tide (7-5) won its second game in a row with a balanced scoring effort. Guard Dazon Ingram finished with his first career double-double, pulling down 10 rebounds to go with his 16 points.

Forward Braxton Key and guard Avery Johnson Jr. each contributed 10 points, with forward Donta Hall adding an efficient eight points on 4-of-5 shooting.

Alabama also dominated the glass, outrebounding the Hatters 53-27. Forward Bola Olaniyan led the Crimson Tide with 13 rebounds off the bench, including eight on the offensive glass.

Alabama led 36-29 at the half, then started the second half on a 15-1 run to put the game out of reach for good. Coach Avery Johnson cleared his bench in the final moments, with guard Lawson Shaffer making the remaining fans happy with an old-fashioned three-point play in the final minute.

Guard Divine Myles led Stetson (6-9) with 18 points. Forward Derick Newton added 13, but the Hatters finished 32-for-60 from the field and turned the ball over 16 times in losing their third consecutive game.

The schedule gets tougher for the Crimson Tide now as SEC play begins next week. Alabama kicks off its conference schedule at Mississippi State on Tuesday.
