Alabama is a #2 seed in the NCAA Selection Committee’s initial rankings

The Tide are ranked #7 overall.

NCAA Basketball: Alabama at South Carolina Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA Tournament selection committee released its initial rankings today, and Alabama is on the 2-seed line at #7 overall. Michael Casagrande has the projected top quartile of the prospective region.

So, if the season ended today and the chalk held, the Tide would rematch with Oklahoma in the round of 16. That would be interesting, as is this nugget from Yahoo college hoops writer Jeff Eisenberg.

It is so odd to see Kentucky, North Carolina, and Duke all struggling mightily at the same time, and while Kansas will almost certainly make the tournament, they have 7 losses and are missing from the top 16 as well. There is a real opportunity for upstarts to make some noise this year.

Know any of those?

Roll Tide.
