Re: 12/6 | Alabama Crimson Tide | 8:00PM

I have no issues with this loss. If they can win their next 3, which they should, they'll be 8-3 heading into conference play and well positioned to get an at large berth if for some reason they don't win the conference tournament. That's not to say I'm not disappointed as obviously this was a winna...
