I'm not sure who that was wearing Alabama basketball jerseys last night. Didn't look like any team I've seen for the last 10-15 years. Anthony Grant's club pulled out a 79-76 win over Baylor in the first round of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando. They played good defense, moved around on offense, and ultimately outplayed a pretty good Baylor team. They trapped, they pressed, they made free throws, they rebounded. It was some kinda fun to watch. Read more about it at tidesports.com.
I read this yesterday and couldn't believe it. I knew it was somewhat like that, but this is just ridiculous. Alabama faces more than 3 times as many idle-rested opponents than anyone else in the conference from 2007-2010. We face 16 idle rested SEC teams, while the next closest one is LSU at 5. Sounds a lil bit like a conspiracy, right? Haha.
