John Petty’s injury not as bad as feared, could return by SEC Tournament

Fantastic news.

NCAA Basketball: Alabama at Mississippi Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

When John Petty needed support for his shooting arm as he prematurely left the court in Starkville, it appeared that his season was over along with any NCAA tournament hopes. Fortunately, it appears that he avoided the worst case.

This news should be a huge shot in the arm, no pun intended, for the team as they face South Carolina tomorrow. Hopefully the home crowd will show out and be loud. The Gamecocks are a tough squad to begin with, but many of them will likely be looking to turn the tables on an Alabama team that spoiled their postseason hopes in Colonial Life Arena last February.

Get back soon, John. We need you.

Roll Tide.
