Alabama gains some ground in latest MBB AP Top 25 Poll

·2 min read

With a win over a ranked Tennessee Vols team in the last outing, the Crimson Tide is gaining ground in the AP Poll this week after seeing a sharp decline in their position begin a couple of weeks ago.

Nate Oats and his Alabama men’s basketball team have elevated to as high as No. 5 this season. However, after losses to Memphis and Davidson the Crimson Tide lost a considerable amount of support among the voters and descended down to No. 19 just last week.

Now, this Alabama team finds itself at No. 15 as conference play gets going. Plenty of tough tests remain on the schedule, but the Tide has the weapons to cause some serious damage in SEC play.
