2010-2011 Record: 25-12 (12-4)
The Crimson Tide barely missed the NCAA Tournament last season and advanced all the way to the NIT title game. This year, Alabama looks to find its way back to the Big Dance. The Tide went an astonishing 19-0 at home, but they must find a way to win on the road, as Alabama went 6-12 away from Tuscaloosa last season. The front line will anchor the Crimson Tide’s squad, with a strong duo of JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell, both of whom averaged over fifteen points per contest last year. The Crimson Tide must improve their perimeter shooting. Not a single player on this year’s roster with college experience shot over 32 percent from beyond the arc last season. Head coach Anthony Grant hopes another strong defensive year will have ‘Bama in the NCAA tournament this season.
