With four games left before post-season play, Alabama finds themselves right on the cut-line for the NCAA Tournament. In order to make a return trip to the Big Dance, the Crimson Tide will likely need to draw even and split the final few games of the regular season. That begins tonight, as the Tide head to Columbia for what Vegas has pegged as a 50/50 match-up with the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Avery Johnson successfully utilized a much shorter rotation in the Tide’s most recent win over Vanderbilt, which started with Kira Lewis, John Petty, Tevin Mack, Herbert Jones, and Donta Hall. Hopefully, he sees fit to continue with the tighter minutes. South Carolina will start A.J. Lawson, Tre Campbell, Keyshawn Bryant, Chris Silva, and Maik Kotsar.
The game will tip at 6:00 PM CST and will be televised on ESPN2.
