By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Tatumn Vaught

Alabama Women’s Basketball hosted Vanderbilt for thier final home game of the season this afternoon. The Tide won their second match-up against the Commodores 77-71 and celebrated their Senior Night after the game.

Standout players included senior Hannah Barber, who earned 15 points, and senior Brittany Davis, who went 11-13 from the field and 8-9 behind the arch for a total of 32 points.

In the first quarter, Barber knocked down one of many threes of the night. Davis had a nice pass down low that was laid up by Jada Rice for two more on the board for Alabama.

In the second quarter, quick hands from Jamya Mingo-Young earned her a steal and she finished it off with two. Forward Allie Craig-Cruce also went beyond the arch and put up three for the Tide.

The second half was more back and forth, but Mingo-Young didn’t let Vanderbilt take advantage of many transition plays. She got a huge block that was under review for a potential foul but ended up favoring her and Bama. With most credit to Davis, Alabama took over and got the win.

After the game, Davis, Barber, Cruce, Abrams, and Sutton were all recognized and given their framed jerseys for Senior Night.  The team managers and assistants were recognized and given photographs by Coach Kristy Curry as well. A video showing photographs of the ladies and highlighting their basketball careers was also shown. Family, friends, and fans were there to celebrate the accomplishments of these seniors.

Alabama finishes the regular season 13-12 and is ranked 11th in the SEC.
