Alabama is hoping Avery Johnson’s NBA pedigree will translate to success in the Southeastern Conference and NCAA Tournament.
Alabama has offered its men’s basketball job to former NBA player and head coach Avery Johnson, a person familiar with the negotiations said Sunday.
Deron Williams didn’t want Friday’s Mavs visit to Brooklyn to be about him. In a way, he got his wish, as Dallas built a huge lead before holding on for a 98-90 win that breaks a three-game losing streak for a Mavs team still trying to mature its way into playoff contention.
Dallas stretched its win streak to 11 with a victory over the Nets on Thursday.
