TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Coach Avery Johnson applauded Alabama's performance all around even if the New Orleans native wasn't quite prepared to break out in a Mardi Gras-style celebration.
Riley Norris and Ar'Mond Davis paced the Crimson Tide to a big halftime lead and `Bama beat struggling LSU 90-72 without really getting challenged on Saturday. Johnson called it "probably one of our most complete performances, especially in SEC play."
"We weren't perfect obviously," he said. "There's no Mardi Gras parade, because Mardi Gras is going on right now. But they should be commended for their effort on both ends of the floor."
