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

The Crimson Tide close out at the regular season in Athens, Georgia today with a rematch against Tom Crean’s Bulldogs.

The game will tip-off at 1:00 PM CST and will be televised by CBS, so get ready to hear the best theme song in sports today:
