ESPN

Alabama forward Donta Hall took a scary fall during the Crimson Tide's game against Auburn. The two rivals just faced off in the SEC Tournament Quarterfinals.

Alabama turned on the jets in the second half. The Crimson Tide, a nine seed in the conference tournament, used a 50-22 second half to win 81-63.

Many bracketologists already had Alabama as one of the last four teams into the NCAA Tournament before this game. A win over a probably top-two seed should almost definitely punch Alabama's ticket.

Hopefully the Crimson Tide will have its full compliment of players if it reaches the Big Dance. Donta Hall, a double digit forward for the Tide, had a pretty scary moment during the game.

Donta hall but on a fake, and wound up jumping over Auburn's Chuma Okeke and coming down on his back.

At first it looked like Hall might've landed on his neck. Luckily that doesn't seem to be the case.

Instead, he landed more around his upper-back and shoulder area. His head did slam against the court, which could not have felt good.

After staying on the ground for a while, Hall managed to walk off the court under his own power. there have to be concussion concerns after the fall, though.

Hall is one of Alabama's top interior players on both ends of the court. The junior averaged 10.9 points, good for second on the team, and leads the Tide with 6.9 rebounds per game.

He is also an impressive shot blocker, with 2.2 per game in just under 24 minutes a night. The Crimson Tide will definitely celebrate this huge win, but it will be bittersweet if Hall is out.

Alabama will face the winner of the Kentucky-Georgia game in the SEC Tournament semifinal tomorrow. The 'Cats and Dawgs will start about 20 minutes after this game ends.
