    Alabama Men Best Detroit 62-54

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- JaMychal Green scored 21 points and No. 16 Alabama rebounded from a two-game losing streak to beat Detroit 62-54 on Sunday night.

    Tony Mitchell added 15 points and freshman Nick Jacobs chipped in 13 in his first start for the Crimson Tide (8-2), which returned to a more characteristic defensive form after losses to Georgetown and at Dayton.

    Detroit (5-7) trailed by 22 points late in the first half and failed to approach its 75.9-point scoring average. The Titans shot 32 percent (17 of 53) and missed all 12 3-point attempts.

    Green made 7 of 9 from the field and 7 of 8 from the free throw line.

    Detroit's Ray McCallum scored 13 points after going into halftime without making a field goal, while Doug Anderson added 12 and Chase Simon had 10 on 2-of-11 shooting.
