After a long 36 or so hours, Alabama finally gets to focus on playing some basketball tonight as they tip-off in Columbia, SC in a match-up against the hapless South Carolina Gamecocks. This really shouldn’t be much of a challenge for Nate Oats’ squad, but the lingering off-the-court distractions could make this game a perilous one for the Tide. Either way, this is a “take care of business” type of game tonight.
Whether anyone supports the decision or not, Brandon Miller is going to play tonight:
