The Alabama Crimson Tide football team may have lost in the College Football Playoff championship game Monday night against the Georgia Bulldogs, but that doesn’t mean the Crimson Tide faithful should abandon all hope and bask in sadness until spring practice comes in focus.
Alabama’s men’s and women’s basketball teams are in midseason form. Both have a shot to do great things this year in the postseason.
These teams need our support as much as the football team. Our energetic crowds and increasing fan support have played a role in winning home contests and signing coveted recruits.
The Crimson Tide men’s hoops squad is 11-4. Although it has lost some questionable games, it is more than capable of making an about-face and playing its best basketball as in early December.
A big game against No. 4 Auburn (14-1, 3-0) Tuesday night at home in Coleman Coliseum will reveal a lot about Alabama’s team. The interior defense must improve if the Tide will have a shot at beating the Tigers and having a meaningful record in conference play to end the year.
Repeating as conference champions in either the regular season, conference tournament or both is within the grasp of head coach Nate Oats’ squad. Accomplishing either would further solidify his reputation, not that he has any more proving of himself to do for Alabama fans, already. The outside media has been iffy for some time.
The women are 10-5 and equally capable of making a big run in both conference play and tournament season. They aren’t off to a great start in conference play, but they can mix it up and get back to their style of basketball.
Certainly, it is painful to bask in the sadness of the defeat suffered at the hands of Georgia in the football national championship. Therefore we must divert our attention to what needs our immediate attention and assistance.
Alabama fans, support all of your Crimson Tide athletics with the heart and fervor you’re capable of.
Alabama men’s basketball takes on the No. 4 Auburn Tigers on Tuesday at 8 p.m. CST.
