Alabama basketball drops three spots in Week 19 AP Poll

After dropping three of their final fives games of the regular season, Alabama basketball was able to cap off SEC play with a nice 92-88 OT victory over Arkansas on Saturday. The Tide trailed 74-68 with 2:05 left in the game, but a massive Grant Nelson three pointer sparked life back into the Crimson Tide.

It might have been a different story if Latrell Wrightsell was able to stay healthy, but with him missing time late in the season, Alabama just never looked the same. The Volunteers were unfortunately able to pull away and earn the title of SEC regular season champs after the series sweep of the Tide. Alabama, alongside Auburn, South Carolina and Kentucky finished the season in second place with a 13-5 record. With post-season play starting this week, the Crimson Tide will be the three-seed in the SEC tournament this week.

The Week 19 AP Poll saw the Crimson Tide drop three spots after going 1-1 last week. However, they should still be a four-seed in March Madness per ESPN’s Joe Lunardi.
