Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama nearly choked a win away against Kentucky on Saturday but it didn’t. The Tide hung on to beat the Wildcats by two, 77–75, to win its first SEC game of the season and run a winning streak to five.
Like last season, Alabama is led by a freshman. Kira Lewis Jr. doesn’t have near the expectations Collin Sexton had a year ago, though. He’s averaging over fourteen points per game and doing it more efficiently than Sexton did, however.
He also has John Petty as a sophomore sidekick, rather than a fellow freshman. Petty has bumped up his efficiency inside the arc to offset what has been a cold start to the season for him from outside. He’s also improved his rebounding and kept it turnovers constant, despite heavier usage.
It’s been three full seasons since LSU last qualified for the NCAA Tournament but the Tigers had the sort of non-conference schedule that will give them a chance to emerge from the SEC.
LSU’s conference slate begins in this game after getting the weekend off. In fact, LSU hasn’t been in action since it beat Louisiana-Monroe on December 28.
There’s less than a year of experience on this team, weighted by minutes played. The Tigers make up for it with size, led by 6’10” freshman Naz Reid. Skylar Mays can score from all three levels.
