Saban and basketball....what a mix...
The Alabama basketball team can look back at Wednesday's 71-61 win over LSU and see good things for the future. They were able to beat the Tigers, Bama's main division opponent, without playing their best basketball. Of course, it's easy to do that when you're hitting from outside like they were early.

Of course, when it came down to crunch time, Richard Hendrix once again showed that he's one of the strongest players in the country by taking Big Baby Davis to the hole time after time. This was a great win, and it was the perfect remedy for last week's thrashing at the hands of Arkansas (who lost at Florida, 79-72). Every SEC West team now has at least one loss, so we'll go ahead and start the season over now. Bama doesn't play again until next Wednesday at Vanderbilt, so hopefully by then, Ronald Steele should be back to around 90%. We hope.

Of course, leave it up to the football coach to be the star of a top 20 SEC basketball game. haha. Saban's introduction was absolutely ecstatic, from what I understand.

Mark Schlabach from wrote this morning about how good things are in Tuscaloosa right now. He went on to discuss how good Saban's appearance was, and how good the basketball team is as well.

""Let's all work together to make a difference, and show them what we got baby," Saban said. "Let's go!" The Mobile Press-Register talked about the appearance, as well as the Montgomery Advertiser, the Decatur Daily, and The Tuscaloosa News. It was good to hear about the Sabans donating $100,000 to the University scholarship fund, which will be used for students who will be the first in their family to attend college.

Sounds like he's already giving back.

Coach Saban is planning on having at least most of his staff in place by Thursday to greet recruits coming in this weekend for official visits. More on the assistants as we get word.
