The final two weeks of the college basketball regular season have arrived and Alabama has a lot at stake before the SEC Tournament.

After another 1-1 week and a tight loss at Kentucky, the Crimson Tide still sits in a tie for third in the conference and looks to be a near lock for the Big Dance in March. If the Tide can hang on to a top four finish in the SEC, then it will lock up a double-bye in the tournament.

To do so, Alabama would have to finish strong against a difficult schedule that features three teams currently in the top 25 of the RPI. It will be a challenge but this team has shown the ability to play with and beat anyone on its schedule. Next up will be a game with the Auburn Tigers with an opportunity to complete the season sweep against a team projected to earn a 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

We discuss all of these topics in episode 22 of the Tide 102.9 Alabama Basketball Podcast. Check it out in the Soundcloud player below or subscribe on iTunes and have it available as soon as it's published.
