Alabama Crimson Tide
This game has been set ever since the regular season ended as the 9 vs. 8 in the SEC, untouched by either of the first two preliminary games featuring the double-digit seeds.
Both of these teams have flashed brilliance in the season, most of it early. And neither has been particularly consistent, which explains why they are both only playing for the right to play #1 Auburn in the quarterfinals.
Auburn is susceptible to an upset though and either of these teams could do it.
Alabama comes into this game on a five-game losing streak. It hasn’t won since it beat LSU three weeks ago and has dropped games to Kentucky, Auburn, Arkansas, Florida and Texas A&M. Three of the losses were by double-digits, the other two were by a possession.
It’s unusual for a freshman to carry a team in the postseason but that is the opportunity Collin Sexton has. Let’s see what he can do. The NBA scouts are sure to be watching.
Texas A&M Aggies
A&M, meanwhile, has won three in a row after holding on to beat ‘Bama at home by a bucket.
The wins and losses have come in chunks for the Aggies this season, going back to their first loss of the season (after seven wins in a row), A&M has won four, lost five, won two, lost two, won four, lost three and won three.
Shooting isn’t the strength of this team. It averages under 33 percent from three and only has two real threats from outside, which hurts the floor spacing for penetration.
But the defense is great and the Aggies clean up on the boards. Tyler Davis and Robert Williams averaged 18 rebounds per game combined in the regular season and will probably both be double-digit machines in the postseason when the stakes are raised.
