BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - -

Corban Collins scored a season-high 24 points against the school where he began his college career and Alabama defeated reeling LSU 81-66 on Saturday.
    
Collins, a post-graduate transfer who spent his freshman season with the Tigers in 2012-13 and played at Morehead State for two seasons, was 7 of 11 from 3-point range after going just 2 of 10 from deep over his previous three games.
    
Riley Norris scored a season-high 20 points, including a pair of second-half 3s as the Crimson Tide (10-6, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) broke open a 56-all tie during the last five minutes for its fifth victory in six games.
    
Duop Reath had 12 points and nine rebounds for LSU (9-7, 1-4), which has lost three straight and five of six.

    If the Saints went winless after three games, their playoff hopes were almost down to zero.
