Alabama’s path to 2024 SEC Conference Tournament Championship

Alabama basketball’s 2023-2024 regular season came to a close with an impressive comeback win over Arkansas. Now, the Tide must wait until Friday to get started in the SEC Conference Tournament in Nashville.

The path Nate Oats and his third-seeded team will take isn’t easy, but it’s not necessarily the most difficult.

On Wednesday, March 13, No. 14 Missouri will take on No. 11 Georgia. The winner of that game will move on to face No. 6 Florida on Thursday. That contest’s winner advances to take on the Crimson Tide on Friday in the quarterfinals.

Should Alabama win, the semifinal matchup would be against one of: No. 10 Ole Miss, No. 7 Texas A&M, or No. 2 Kentucky.

Technically, Alabama is only three games away from winning the conference tournament.

Late-season struggles plagued the Tide in conference play, suffering some ugly losses to a few quality teams. Injuries are something to monitor, especially guard Rylan Griffen, who missed the regular season finale.
