Alabama v. Auburn Game Thread

Alabama Crimson Tide (17-12, 8-8 SEC) vs. Auburn Tigers (20-9, 9-7 SEC)

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Auburn vs Alabama Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

With a week left to play in the 2019 regular season, everything is coming down to the wire for the Crimson Tide. Alabama finds themselves smack-dab in the middle of the bubble for the NCAA Tournament, as well as a game back of a five-way tie for 4th place in the SEC. One more victory more than likely secures the Tide’s spot in the Big Dance, as this year’s bubble is especially soft.

This game would be massive for Avery Johnson and his team regardless. That the opponent happens to be the Auburn Tigers just makes it even more so. This is a huge game for Alabama; they need to come out firing.

The Tide will likely start Kira Lewis, John Petty, Dazon Ingram, Tevin Mack, and Donta Hall, while the Tigers counter with Jared Harper, Bryce Brown, Samir Doughty, Chuma Okeke, and Anfernee McLemore.

The game tips at 8:00 PM CST and will be televised on ESPNU.
