A terrible start on the road against a Southeastern Conference rival is no longer enough to rattle JaMychal Green and his Alabama teammates.

Green had 18 points and Alabama beat LSU 67-56 on Thursday night, giving the Crimson Tide 12 wins in 14 games while extending the Tigers’ losing streak to nine.

“We never got frustrated,” Green said of Alabama’s 0-for-9 start from the field. “I knew deep down when the second half came we were going to make a run and finish the game out.”
