#24 Alabama at Georgia Game Thread

#24 Alabama Crimson Tide (14-6, 6-1 SEC) at Georgia Bulldogs (14-6, 4-3 SEC)

NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Alabama Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a tricky visit to Athens, GA tonight, as your SEC-leading and 24th-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide takes on the improved Georgia Bulldogs.

It’ll be interesting to see how much run this group gets together, and how well they can defend and compete on the glass.

Alabama is a 6.5-point road favorite. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 PM CST and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.
