Alabama Men’s Basketball Hosts Ole Miss on Senior Night
Alabama will close out the regular season home slate when it hosts the Ole Miss Rebels on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. CT. The contest will also mark Senior Night as the Crimson Tide senior class will play their final regular-season game at Coleman Coliseum.
Ole Miss and Alabama will play for the 177th time in series history on Wednesday night – tied for the second-most games against any single opponent in Crimson Tide program history. UA owns a 119-57 lead in the all-time series, which ranks as the second-most victories against an opponent in the UA record books. Both numbers only trail the 196 total games and 122 victories the Tide owns over Mississippi State.
Alabama lost its second consecutive game when it fell at Texas A&M, 56-53, last Saturday night. The Tide held the Aggies to just 14 made field goals, but Texas A&M scored 26 of its 56 points from the charity stripe (26-of-37) to hold on for the win. The Tide was led by junior Ar'Mond Davis' 11 points, while Jimmie Taylor led the team with seven rebounds and three blocked shots to go along with six points. Both players came off the bench, helping Alabama reserves outscore its counterparts, 26-7.
