WATCH: Atlanta native Collin Sexton hits game-winner at SEC Tournament 

Former Pebblebrook High School standout Collin Sexton had his Southeastern Conference Tournament moment on Thursday.

The SEC co-Freshman of the Year went coast-to-coast to hit a game-winning shot to lift Alabama over Texas A&M in the second round of the tournament. 

Texas A&M guard T.J. Starks hit what looked to be a dagger 3-pointer to win the game with 4.3  seconds left, giving the Aggies a 70-69 lead. Sexton took the in-bounds pass from a teammate and sped down the court. He threw up a floater from the free-throw line and swished it for a 71-70 win. 

He had a team-high 27 points in the victory. The Crimson Tide will take on rival Auburn Friday at 1:00 ET.
