Alabama




















How Chuck Davis' mom keeps him motivated


I'll keep this short and sweet.

From espn.com:
"'Bama is statistically underwhelming: not very productive from the three-point line, has a negative turnover margin, is no better than decent defensively"


Also, the word on the street is that the Tide is screwed when their opponents have any sort of bench depth and when they are outsized.

Alabama, meet Ousman Barro and Steve Novak.

It's not necessarily the depth on the bench that Bama has problems with, it's the style of play. I don't know a whole lot about Marquette, but if they'll really press Bama, make them play the whole 40 minutes and get a couple of guys in foul trouble (namely Davidson and Felix) our lack of depth will catch up to us.

I'll pass that along.

Todd's exactly right. Alabama only likes to play about 25 minutes a game, 30 minutes maximum.

If you can keep it close or really outgun us in the 10-15 minutes we don't bother playing, it shouldn't be a problem for the Golden/Golden Eagles/Golden Warriors.
