The Alabama men's basketball team traveled to Huntsville for the first of two neutral site games this week and held on to defeat Mercer by a single point.

The Crimson Tide shot just 1 for 16 from three-point range in the first half and trailed for a good portion of the game before taking control late. The biggest news from Tuesday night was the return of sophomore Braxton Key. The preseason All-SEC second-teamer missed the first 10 games with an injury but debuted in the starting lineup against the Bears.

Those topics were discussed on episode 10 of the Tide 102.9 Alabama Basketball Podcast. Here's the full rundown from show:
