ALABAMA FINDS ITSELF IN MUST-WIN SCENARIO

Alabama Basketball00000000

The Alabama men’s basketball team has two games remaining on its schedule.

The Crimson Tide is coming off a loss to No.10 LSU 74-69. In a whirlpool of emotions, Alabama finds itself in a familiar place. Last season, the Crimson Tide went on a five-game losing streak before making a run in the SEC tournament to secure its spot in the NCAA tournament. Now, Alabama is in the same position.

On Tuesday night, Alabama will host Auburn for the final game of the season at Coleman Coliseum. The last time the two foes met, the Tigers beat the Crimson Tide 84-63. Alabama will have to be consistent throughout the game playing through center Donta Hall and guard Kira Lewis Jr.

If Alabama can beat Auburn at home and Arkansas away, the Crimson Tide is almost a lock for the NCAA tournament. However, if Alabama cannot pull off the wins, its a must-win scenario for whoever Alabama plays during the SEC tournament. Upsets happen in conference tournaments and the more that do, the fewer at-large spots there are.

Alabama returns to action tomorrow, March. 5 against Auburn. Tipoff is slated for 8 p.m.
