Recap: Alabama vs. Tennessee

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Levi Randolph had 15 points in Alabama's much-needed 58-48 win over Tennessee in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament.

Trevor Releford added 14 points for the Crimson Tide (21-11), who had dropped three of their final four regular-season game prior to the conference tournament.

Alabama will play top-seeded Florida in Saturday's semifinals.

Josh Richardson netted 16 points for the Volunteers (20-12), who had won nine of their last 10 contests coming in.

Tennessee, which shot just 32.1 percent (18-of-56) from the floor, will be sweating out a possible NCAA Tournament bid until Sunday.

Vols leading scorer Jordan McRae, who had just nine points and was saddled with foul trouble, pulled Tennessee within 44-41 after hitting a 3-pointer with 12:15 to play.

Alabama, though, scored the next six as Retin Obasohan made a pair of foul shots and Nick Jacobs recorded back-to-back buckets for a 50-41 Alabama margin with 9:03 left and the Vols never got closer than four the rest of the way.

Earlier, Releford nailed a trey with four seconds left in the opening half to give the Crimson Tide a 31-27 cushion heading into the break.
