Alabama MBB takes slight stumble in latest Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll

·2 min read

Nate Oats and the Crimson Tide men’s basketball team have dropped a second game on the season, this one was a road matchup against a hungry Memphis team. The recent loss came directly after Alabama took down two of last season’s Final Four teams in Gonzaga and Houston.

Though the Crimson Tide remain the highest-ranked SEC team in the latest Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll, others are gaining ground, though. Auburn sits one place behind Alabama at No. 12, LSU is No. 16, Kentucky at No. 18 and Tennessee at No. 19.
