The Crimson Tide finished the regular season as the SEC champs with a blistering 19-5 record in the SEC - an excellent feat seeing how the SEC has 8 teams in the top 20 in RPI. They finished 44-10 overall.
The SEC tournament will begin in Columbia, SC on Wednesday, May 7th with Alabama's first game on Thursday, May 8 at 5:30 pm CT on ESPNU vs. the winner of Auburn-South Carolina. It is single-elimination.
