It was a great season for Alabama men’s basketball, but it comes to an end with a loss to UCLA in the Sweet 16.

The Crimson Tide made a deep run in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004.

Despite not being able to advance to the Elite Eight, the football team has enjoyed the journey and fight the basketball program was on.

Alex Reese hit a clutch three-pointer with seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime, but the Tide suffered an 88-78 loss to the Bruins.

A few players from the football program were disappointed with the loss but proud of the team.
