Alabama's only good basketball player.

Alabama’s only good basketball player.

Last night the Alabama Crimson Tide men’s basketball team took to the court for a 40-minute matchup with the University of Mississippi. After the contest, Alabama had more points, and thus was declared the winner!

Trevor Releford led all scorers with 26 points, 21 coming in the second half, including the 3-point game winner at the buzzer to defeat Ole Miss (16-8, 7-4) 67-64.

“That was a big time shot,” Tide Coach Anthony Grant said. “(Releford) really stepped it up and put the team on his back. We were able to get stops at the end and make enough plays to win the game.”

Alabama (10-14, 4-7) is now poised to make a come back this season, sitting currently at 11th in the conference. The Tide’s focus is to get itself poised for NIT selection Sunday, now just weeks away.

Critical to that comeback, however, is Bama’s next game at South Carolina. In a perplexing stat, the Tide is 0-7 on the road, but travel to face a Gamecock team that is 1-9 in conference play, currently ranked 14th in the league. It seems the unstoppable force vs. immovable object theory is about to take shape before our very eyes.

Saturday’s game is scheduled for a 3:00 p.m. CT tip, for some reason televised by SEC-TV.

    If Alabama can make the NIT this year it will be a small miracle. But it would be good for the program. Sitting out march tourney time entirely would be horrible…we all know they need the extra practice

      in five years of Anthony Grant, two have culminated in trips to the NIT tournament.

      exactly how did all that extra practice benefit the program??

      Same here. This program really puts a damper on the winter.
