NOTEWORTHY: Tide freshman guard Herbert Jones did not practice Wednesday with what coach Avery Johnson labeled a “head injury” he suffered Tuesday against Florida. Jones did not play in the second half of that game and Johnson said he will attend practice Thursday to gauge his availability against the Aggies. … The Crimson Tide beat Texas A&M — then ranked No. 5 — 79-57 to open the SEC schedule on Dec. 30 in Tuscaloosa. Alabama is 1-3 this season in re-match games. … Alabama has not won in College Station since 2014-15, in the final regular-season game of former coach Anthony Grant’s tenure. … Tide forward Donta Hall, who is shooting 73 percent from the field, has attempted just 11 shots in Alabama’s last three games — all losses.
