Starting this up as we are now in the meat of our schedule... and after the pink meet, it looks like we may be in the title discussion again
this year, but only if we can get our ducks in a row by March.
Only the seniors of this team were coached under Sarah Patterson (has it been that long) as the Gym Tide is now 5 years removed from Alabama's last national championship. HC Dana Duckworth will look to build on SEC success last year and a #3 final ranking, by winning it all in St. Louis. This year, while the Oklahoma Sooners and LSU Tigers look to be the biggest threat for the trophy, Alabama left the gate slowly. Forgivable losses against back to back #1 opponents gave way to a low point upset to Arkansas and near disaster vs Auburn.
Last week, clad in pink, the Tide put on a show with a season high and the third highest score of the year, rocketing themselves back into title talk. Now Alabama has to prove the Power of Pink was no fluke.
Kentucky, while historically not even close to the same league as Bama, has been having a record season. Also, the UK arena is known for tough scoring, so even with a win, Alabama will be looking for a high score to help their ranking.
Alabama faces #10 Kentucky today in Lexington. Meet is at 6pm on the SEC Network.
