Alabama Crimson Tide (1-1) vs UNLV Running Rebels (0-2)

NCAA Basketball: Alabama at Mississippi State Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s try this again: the Alabama Crimson Tide rounds out the second day of the 2020 Maui Invitational with a second round consolation match-up with the UNLV Rebels. Following a disheartening performance just yesterday against the Stanford Cardinal, the Tide will try to flip the script and salvage something out of this incredible opportunity to play in a major non-conference tournament.

With less than 24 hours since last night’s game ended, it will be up to the players to get this ship righted for the time being. Surely, the shots will start falling, but we need to see better effort across the board in all areas of the game. Particularly rebounding and half-court defense.

We’ll see what these players have in them. Can the Tide bounce back and avoid falling to the seventh place game?
