INDIANAPOLIS — Alabama basketball fell short in overtime on Sunday night inside Hinkle Fieldhouse to UCLA, 88-78.

Within the first 40 seconds of the game, coach Nate Oats was forced to send the Crimson Tide's captain and SEC Player and Defensive Player of the Year Herb Jones to the bench. 

The senior wing had picked up two offensive fouls on the team's first two possessions. 

At the time, it didn't matter much. 

Alabama found itself trailing 7-1 at the 16:35 mark of the opening half, but then proceeded to go on a 18-4 run without Jones on the floor.

The run was ignited by three-pointers from senior forward Jordan Bruner and guard Keon Ellis. 

UCLA star guard Johnny Juzang missed his first four field goals before leading the Bruins response with seven of the next 10 points to cut the deficit down to 21-20. 

Alabama offensive woes continued throughout the first period, going 3-of-10 from beyond-the-arc.

Jones ultimately sat on the sideline for the next 10 minutes of action after picking up those two quick fouls. 

Jones, guards John Petty Jr.

and Jaden Shackelford and forward Alex Reese combined for two points on 1-of-10 shooting from the floor.

 

Bruins guards Jules Bernard and David Singleton combined to go 6-of-7 from three-point range to give UCLA a 40-29 lead at intermission. 

However, behind clutch shooting from Petty and a tenacious defensive effort, Alabama opened the second half on a 12-0 run to tie it after the Bruins missed its first seven attempts from the floor. 

A back-and-forth second period saw UCLA leading 65-62 with four seconds left but a three-pointer from Reese, who pulled up from near half-court, tied it at the sound of the buzzer. 

Juzang, the NCAA tournament's leader scorer entering Sunday, would later foul out with 2:26 on the clock.

He finished with 13 points on 5-of-18 shooting, four rebounds and two steals. 

UCLA controlled the overtime period from the jump, outscoring the Crimson Tide 23-13 over the final five minutes of action.
