re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (11-5)
Saw a little bit of the UVA BC game: UVA is the most excellent defensive team in college basketball. They also take care of the ball. Tony Bennett did not start out on fire with UVA though; his 1st four seasons were not that great:

2009–10 15–16 T–9th
2010–11 16–15 T–7th
2011–12 22–10 T–4th NCAA Round of 64
2012–13 23–12 T–4th NIT Quarterfinal

Season 5 UVA went to the Sweet 16. I think this guy is the best low profile coach in college basketball.

Is he really low profile anymore? They've been a Top 5/10 team for a while now.

And after last years tournament.......ain't much under the radar about UVA.

I love their program and his coaching, but I'm just not sure they can win 5 straight games against elite teams.

If only they were the 1 seed we drew last year instead of Nova. We would have beat them IMO.

That UMBC game where they were the first #1 seed to lose to a 16 seed was probably a fluke.

Your'e probably right. That is why you have to play well throughout the season to be placed in the right bracket and seed. With Collin getting that dog in him at the end of the season, Bama was a threat-but the greatest college postseason team in modern history was waiting in the 2nd round.

All teams are better at home. lsu had three, 3 point bricks bank off the backboard against us, and go in. Plus they were very rested, and had 11 days to get ready for the game. Auburn shot like crap against Ole Miss. That wont happen at their house. The barn lives by the 3 and dies by the 3.
When they dont go down, they are very beatable, even with all the talent they have.

Good thing our game with Ole Miss isnt at the Tad Pad or whatever the frick it was called. They would have run us off the court in that building.





Didn't they recently run us off the court in their new place? It seems we never play well in Oxford, regardless of the venue.

Positive outlook on things:

We’ve won 5 of the last 6 games and we played hard and almost came back to beat a pretty good LSU team on the road. Keep playing how we’ve been playing and I seriously think we’ll make the tourney.

The main thing this team needs to do is protect home court

Or their defense could’ve strangled us and limited us to around 35 points.

re: Official Alabama Basketball Season Thread (11-5)
Are you guys a little surprised this team wins on the boards most games? Just from the eye test, we don't seen to box out well and constantly allow guys to get underneath the basket. We rank 125th in the country in rebounds per game and have won on the boards in 12 of our games. However, this could be a huge contributor: we defend the perimeter so poorly, Alabama actually ranks 289th in 3-point FG defense. Teams are realizing they can drive and we'll double team the ball handler, and kick it out to a wide open man. As a result, Alabama ranks 34th in opponent 3-point attempts per game.

Sometimes the stats on the box score don't tell the whole story.

He might need to take some of Galin’s minutes, seriously. Galin is just so stiff and can’t really do anything but dunk when someone hands him the ball right under the goal. He can’t dribble, he turns the ball over a lot, he travels a lot, and he doesn’t know how to pass. It’s ridiculous.

Boy, I'm already having flashbacks if Giddens starts taking Galin's minutes. If Galin turns the ball over too much, wait till they pass the ball to Giddens' small hands.

Seeing that reminded me of Wimp on the radio today saying sometimes he had to call "Dr. Transcript" to get a few kids in school.

The kids they have today are good students from good families: Herbert, Alex, Kira, AJ, Riley, Galin--all good students. Wimp's guys were athletes who seemed to just be ballers except for the bench warmers.
