The Alabama Crimson Tide returns home after a two game road trip that saw the Tide fall to Vanderbilt and Auburn.

After going 9-3 in non-conference play, Alabama has lost 4 of their last 5 games thanks to a difficult slate of games to begin Southeastern Conference play.

It doesn’t get easier as LSU comes in with one of the top freshman in college basketball in Ben Simmons. On Inside the Locker Room, LSU Head Coach Johnny Jones offered a glowing review of Simmons.

“He’s certainly unique, and I can just say that he’s the best all-around player that I’ve had an opportunity to be associated with.”

The entire conversation with Jones can be heard in the video above. Saturday’s game is a sellout with tip off at 1 PM on ESPNU.

You can listen to Inside the Locker Room every weekday from 7-9 AM on Tide 99.1 and via the radioPup app.
