South Alabama Jaguars
In their last game South Alabama was on the road and lost to Wichita State where they lost 64-58 due to poor shooting. Their defense was not bad holding the Shockers to a FG% of 44.4% and a 3-pt FG% of only 18.8% (3-16) but it was not enough to overcome their own 37.3% from the floor.
Through the teams first two games, four players are averaging at least 11 ppg led by Javon Franklin (15 ppg 10.5 rpg), who also leads the team in rebounding. He was one of the few players that had a good game in the loss to Wichita State, as he had a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds and shot 72.7% from the floor.
Jay Jay Chandler (14.5 ppg) only had eight points in the last game on 25% shooting after going for 21 points in the blowout win over Spring Hill. Charles Manning Jr. (13 ppg) did not play in the Spring Hill game but made his debut against Wichita State, finishing with 13 points on 37.5% shooting but had 7 turnovers.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Nate Oats transformed Alabama into a national contender in just his second season as head coach, and will now hope to follow up one of the best years in recent history for the program with an even deeper NCAA Tournament run.
There’s also a ton of production to replace, with 2021 SEC Player of the Year Herb Jones now gone to the NBA after leading the team in rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. Josh Primo was also a lottery pick after providing 8.1 points per game, along with third-leading scorer John Petty leaving for the NBA himself.
Oats will turn to a top 15 recruiting class to make up for those losses, as point guard JD Davidson is a five-star freshman and Charles Bediako is a skilled seven footer who should be in the starting lineup. .Noah Gurley is an impact transfer after averaging 15.4 points per game at Furman last season on 48.8% shooting from the floor.
After scoring 93 points in their season-opening win over Louisiana Tech, Alabama had another solid offensive performance in their last game, which was a 104-88 win over South Dakota State.
Leading scorer Jaden Shackelford is back after averaging 14.0 points per game last season to pace the potent Alabama attack. Jahvon Quinerly will also look to build on a solid sophomore season, as he contributed 12.9 points and 3.2 assists per contest.
Shackelford leads the team in scoring, averaging 20 ppg along with 6 rpg. Javon Quinerly his right behind him with an average of 17.5 ppg and adds 5 apg and 4.5 rpg. Keon Ellis also off to a hot start as he averages 16.5 ppg and a team high 11 rpg.
CBB Betting Trends:

Free South Alabama Jaguars vs. Alabama Crimson Tide NCAAB Prediction:
South Alabama lost their last game due to poor shooting despite their solid defensive performance. They will face a much tougher test this week as they are on the road with the fast paced and sharpshooting Alabama offense.
The Crimson Tide are averaging 97.5 points per game already this season and that is no fluke. Nate Oats is one of the best coaches in college basketball and he has transformed this team inter an offensive powerhouse.
Furthermore, Alabama has the size advantage in the paint which will force the Jaguars defense to tighten up inside on the shot. That will leave some of these talented Alabama guards open which have been known to wreak havoc behind the arc.
Look for the Tide to keep on rolling and the Jaguars to be swept away on Tuesday night.
