In First Meeting Since Tree Poisoning, Alabama Gets By Auburn With Last Second Tip In

For the first time since an uber Alabama fan, Harvey Updyke, revealed on Paul Finebaum's radio show that he poisoned the oak trees on Toomers Corner, Auburn and Alabama competed against each other in Tuscaloosa.

While the men's basketball game was important the recent tree poisoning was still top of mind. Bryant Somerville of ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Alabama provided this report on the mood of the fans in the aftermath.

As far as the game it was a dandy. Alabama's JaMychal Green's tip in with 0.3 seconds left to win it for the Crimson Tide 51-49.

Here's the only video we could find of the game. The buzzer beater is at the 7:45 mark. (Thanks michaelcasagrande/
