Alabama ends its three-game homestand to begin the season when it squares off against the Ball State Cardinals on Friday at 8 p.m. CT. The contest will mark the second round of the 2016 Las Vegas Main Event. The Tide opened the event at home on Nov. 11, with a 70-53 victory over Coastal Carolina.

Alabama will look to bounce back from a 77-72 loss to Dayton on Tuesday in a game with seven ties and five lead changes. Avery Johnson's team pulled down 18 offensive rebounds and finished +12 in rebounding margin, but the Flyers shot over 60% in the second half to pull out the win.

Friday's game will be televised on SEC Network with Dave Baker and Kyle Macy on the call. Fans can listen to the radio broadcast on the Crimson Tide Sports Network as Chris Stewart (play-by-play) and Bryan Passink (analyst) will call all the action.
