The Crimson Tide head to Omaha, Nebraska to face a familiar post-season foe, the Creighton Bluejays. Both teams are looking to build upon promising seasons as they begin the NIT tonight, and both are hoping that a deep tournament run can provide the springboard for a much improved 2016-17 season. Either way, Alabama and Creighton are both teams on the rise, and it would be a mild surprise if both of them aren't participating in the Big Dance next March.
Retin Obasohan and Arthur Edwards will also be playing in their last game(s) of their Alabama careers. Enjoy watching these two while it lasts, everyone. The two of them will need some help from the rest of the team if they want to extend their collegiate careers by another game, because the Jays are a very good basketball team.
The game tips at 8:00 PM CDT and will be televised on ESPN.
