Before Alabama’s last game on Tuesday (an 86-69 win over Jackston State), starting guard Anthony Brock was suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules.

So an Alabama team with only 11 players on its roster was down to 10 against Jackson State as it sought its first victory of the season. The Crimson Tide opened Saturday with a 71-67 loss at home to Cornell.

Brock, who came to Alabama last season as a junior college transfer, made his first career start in that game and scored 15 points.

While he is not the best player on the team, he is a pretty good shooter capable of putting up some points.

From ESPN’s preview

Three other contributors from last season return. Anthony Brock (5.6 ppg, 1.3 rpg), a 5-9 senior, also got a new lease on life after Pearson took over. He didn’t play a second in 10 straight games from Dec. 13 to Jan. 21. After Gottfried resigned, he played no fewer than 12 minutes in every game thereafter, and started putting up some numbers: 17 points against Ole Miss, 15 against Vanderbilt, 11 in an upset at Tennessee that he delivered with a banked-in three-pointer at the buzzer.

Brock wound up leading Alabama in three-point percentage (.449, 22-of-49).

Here is a chart of his team impact in scoring in an average of 16 minutes per game played last season.

There is no word on whether or not he will suit up against Providence tomorrow night.
