Alabama, fresh off of a big loss at Vanderbilt, gets a chance to redeem itself against a very hot Georgia team, who is 3-1 in the SEC following a win at Arkansas on Wednesday night.
Bama could run into some problems with Georgia, due to the Tide continuing to run that dreaded 2-3 zone. They will have to play a lot of matchup zone today due to the undersized guards from Georgia. The Bulldogs are 2nd in the conference in 3 point shooting, and if they get hot early, they could kill Bama, even at home.
I think that following Wednesday's disaster at Vanderbilt, Alabama will play more man to man and probably sit Steele a little bit more than they have been. It's obvious that he's hurt, and his inabilities, both offensively and defensively, are killing this basketball team. Georgia will hit their shots, but Bama's got too much pride to get beat at home. Look for a close game to come down to the wire.
