Alabama basketball agrees to three game series with Memphis

Nate Oats continues to schedule aggressively as he brings in top talent.

Nate Oats has put together an outstanding roster, and he continues to challenge his talent with aggressive scheduling. Cecil Hurt reported back in June that Alabama had agreed to a series with Memphis, and the university officially announced it today.

This year’s game is merely a charity exhibition up there, but the Tigers and Tide will play home and home for the following two seasons. Besides the fact that Memphis is a quality opponent, the Memphis area is a hotbed for basketball talent. Exposure up there can only help.

Can’t wait to see this team in action.

Roll Tide.
