Alabama will take on Arkansas State in the first annual Rocket City Classic, which will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 21, in Huntsville, Ala., at the Von Braun Center.

Alabama will play in Huntsville for just the second time in program history. The only other time the Tide has played a game in the Rocket City came just over 17 years ago on Dec. 18, 1999, when Alabama captured a 75-51 victory over Chattanooga.

The Crimson Tide is coming off a 67-54 loss to Clemson last Sunday in the BBVA Compass Vulcan Classic last Sunday, which was held Birmingham, Ala., at Legacy Arena. It marked Alabama’s third loss over its last four games.

Wednesday's game will be televised on SEC Network with Doug Bell (play-by-play) and Tony Delk (analyst) on the call. Fans can listen to the radio broadcast on the Crimson Tide Sports Network as Chris Stewart (play-by-play) and Bryan Passink (analyst) will call all the action. Live stats for the contest can accessed through, while in-game updates and photos will be made available on Twitter on @AlabamaMBB.
