Nate Jokes About Lighting Issues At Auburn 

The lighting problem at Coleman Coliseum during Alabama’s basketball game against Auburn resulted in an unexpected delay just minutes into the contest.

Alabama’s head coach, Nate Oats, stated that the lights, particularly the red ones from the pregame introductions, failed to switch over to the regular lighting.
