PREVIEW: Alabama Opens SEC Tournament vs Ole Miss
After losing four out of five games to end the regular season, the Alabama men's basketball team heads to Nashville needing a deep run in the SEC Tournament to have any shot at an NCAA Tournament bid.
The Crimson Tide will enter as the 10-seed and play Ole Miss tonight at 6PM. The Rebels won the only other meeting between the two schools this year, 74-66, in Oxford to open conference play in January.
After winning five-straight games in February, Alabama cooled off down the stretch. The team lost home games against Mississippi State and Arkansas while dropping road games at Kentucky and Georgia.
Ole Miss, meanwhile, won four of its last five games and enters March playing very well. Andy Kennedy's team won 20 games once again and will hope to make some noise in the SEC Tournament.
Tonight's game will be carried live on 95.3 the Bear in Tuscaloosa and broadcast nationally on the SEC Network.
