On Sunday, the Crimson Tide landed prominent transfer forward Noah Gurley out of Furman University. The 6-foot-8 forward out of Fayetteville, GA averaged 15.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this past season for the Paladins. His efforts earned him Second Team All-Southern Conference last season.
The game-winning score came on a 4-yard play-action pass from McElroy to senior running back Roy Upchurch. Then freshman sensation, Richardson touched the ball on the three prior plays for the Tide, one on screen and two rushes out of the backfield.
