#8 Alabama vs Vanderbilt Game Thread

#8 Alabama Crimson Tide (17-5, 12-1 SEC) vs. Vanderbilt Commodores (6-11, 2-9 SEC)

NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Alabama Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Senior Day in Tuscaloosa, as the Alabama Crimson Tide attempt to clinch at least a share of the regular season SEC Championship, the first since 2002. Jerry Stackhouse and his Vanderbilt Commodores, much more dangerous than they’ve been in recent years, come to town looking to play spoiler.

Word on the street is that Nate Oats will be rolling with an all-senior starting five today, as Tyler Barnes and Kendall Wall will be getting their first career starts to go along with the usual John Petty, Herb Jones, and Alex Reese. Another interesting bit of news is that Juwan Gary is expected to play today, as he’s recovered from the shoulder injury he sustained in the South Carolina game. Jordan Bruner is also out in warm-ups today, but it appears he will still need a few more days.

Alabama is currently a 14-point favorite. The game will tip at noon CST and will be televised on the SEC Network. Time to #WTWFT
