The tip-off is set for Thursday at 5:00 ET from the HP Field House.
Alabama Crimson Tide
This Alabama team has looked good so far this year. They have gotten off to a pretty impressive start.
The Crimson Tide last played on November 19th when they beat Oakland by a score of 86-59. They did just what they had to do against a team they were much better than.
As it often happens with good teams, they do not play great teams early on. That has been the case so far with Alabama. They have already played their fair share of cupcake games.
To me, this game over Iona would be a good win. They are better than the Gaels, but I am not totally sold on them winning easily.
In the win over Oakland, lots of different people stepped up in the scoring department. Jaden Shackelford was the leading scorer with 20 points and 5 rebounds. Jahvon Quinerly had 19 points and 3 rebounds.
Iona has also had an impressive start to the season. You could not ask for a better start thus far.
The Gales come into this game with a 5-0 record. They will be in for their biggest challenge of the year when they face the Crimson Tide on Thursday.
This team took care of the North Alabama Lions on Saturday by a score of 81-65 on Saturday. Things will not come as easy for them when they go against a very good team in Iona.
Against North Alabama, both Quinn Slazinski and Tyson Jolly both had 18 points. Nelly Junior Joseph also chipped in 17 points. It is fair to say if this team is going to win, their best players are going to have to step up in a big way. Otherwise, it will be a long day for them.

Free Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Iona Gaels NCAAB Prediction:
To me, this is a game that can be better than some think. I still feel that Alabama will win the ball game, but I do think that Iona can compete.
This is a battle between two teams that have gotten off to very good starts in 2021. With that said, something has to give, right?
I do feel that as the game goes on, the Crimson Tide will be too much for the Gaels to handle because they do have more talent up and down the court. Even with that, I do feel Iona can make this a competitive game and keep it within the number of 12 here.
I will go with Iona getting 12 points in this one.
