Alabama men’s basketball now sits at 9-3 on the season before heading into conference play. The three losses were all to teams that Crimson Tide fans likely overlooked when glancing at the schedule.

With the struggles of late on the hardwood, Alabama dropped to No. 19 in the latest Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll.

The Crimson Tide is fine, for now, but there are issues that need tending to if Nate Oats wants to build upon the foundation he has built in Tuscaloosa.

Last year’s Sweet 16 run was electric for the SEC team, but the bar is now set just as high for this 2021-22 season.
