Everything Nate Oats said following Alabama's win over No. 1 Houston

Nate Oats and the Alabama men’s basketball team went on the road on Saturday and took down Kelvin Sampson and the No. 1 ranked Houston Cougars.

Not only did Alabama get the impressive win,

but the Tide also had to recover from a 15-point second-half deficit to win the matchup between top-ten teams.

Alabama was led by freshman big man Noah Clowney who tallied 16 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 blocks.

Star forward Brandon Miller did not have his best game of the season,

but the freshman came through in the clutch sinking all six of his free throws in the final minute to seal the victory for the Tide.

Here is everything coach Oats had to say following the monumental win.

“This is one of those character wins that shows that our guys are gonna keep fighting no matter what the score is.

We kind of made some changes with the bench guys, hung in there,

kept clawing away at the lead, finally took the lead and then were able to pull away from them.

That’s a tough team. You’ve gotta give Houston a ton of credit.

They give you everything you can handle. Our offense was looking like a disaster for most of the game, and that’s total credit to them. They take you out of what you wanna do.
