Bama Basketball: at Tennessee

Time: 7pm CST
TV: Lincoln Financial Sports
Place: Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, TN

So Alabama is trying for their 8th straight over Tennessee. The biggest mismatch of the night will be Richard Hendrix and Jermareo Davidson manning up against whichever 6'6" kids they wanna throw at them. Alabama has had some trouble with teams that play a four guard set, and Tennessee is no different. They're fast and they pressure you a lot.

The key to the game will be how smart Ronald Steele and Brandon Hollinger are with the basketball. We've not been very good this year against the press, and that's all this team does. However, last year, in this same situation, we handled it easily. Regardless of what anyone thinks, Alabama likes to run. The only person that may not be able to stay on pace is Richard Hendrix, but I'm pretty sure he'll be ok. The rest of the guys like to have the game flow quickly.

I would imagine that, with Chris Lofton on the other team, and a few other kids that like to shoot the three ball, that we'll be playing a lot more man to man tonight. Look for Tubbs and Hollinger to not even give Lofton room to breathe. Gotta remember though, he's going to get his. Like I said the other day, the key is to not let him BEAT you. If he's the only one scoring, that's fine. Just don't let him beat you with assists, steals, and threes.

I really think that Tennessee needs this one as bad as we do. After being drilled by South Carolina the other night, they'll be out to prove something. With the home court advantage, I'm going to have to go with Tennessee in this game. Sucks.
