Alabama Basketball vs EKU Open Thread

Nate Oats and company get a bit of a breather from a brutal stretch.

Following a brutal gauntlet that has the well traveled Tide saddled with five losses much earlier in the season than Nate Oats would have hoped for, Alabama returns home to face 4-7 Eastern Kentucky.

This one should go smoothly, but any team can be dangerous if taken lightly. You can bet that Oats will be intense in this one, particularly when Alabama is on defense. The Tide will have to get better on that end to have any chance at a deep March run.

Tip-off is at 3pm CT and will be televised on SEC Network.

Roll Tide.
