Alabama Basketball: Anthony Grant talks Auburn and Alabama’s improvement

Alabama Basketball Coach Anthony Grant talked about the remainder of the regular season for his Crimson Tide. Alabama faces Auburn in a rivalry game in SEC basketball action. One big question is the status of Trevor Lacy’s ankle. And Grant admitted things are unclear for Lacy playing this week.

Grant said Lacy aggravated the ankle during the Mississippi State game. Grant said the first priority is making sure Lacy is healthy, but said Lacy is a “tough kid” and would be evaluated to see where he was later in the week.

When asked if the suspensions contributed to the improved play of Alabama’s basketball team, Grant said there were many things that have led to Alabama’s improvement. Grant pointed toward more experience and players stepping up. Grant said the wins have increased the confidence of his team.

Grant talked about the importance of the Tennessee game in the resurgence of his basketball team.
