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

The Crimson Tide hit the road for the opening game of the 2022 calendar year against a very formidable Florida team in the O-Dome, where many Tide Hoops teams have struggled to escape with a win over the years. Nate Oats’ squad will be looking to build upon the momentum from the Tide’s victory in the top-25 showdown in Tuscaloosa over the Tennessee Vols last week.

Of course, Noah Gurley will be looking to build on his elite performance against the Vols off of the bench.

The game will tip-off at 6:00 PM CST and will be televised on ESPN2.
