They’re all huge from here on out. The final four regular season games for the Alabama basketball team starts tonight in Fayetteville. Read about it here:
TUSCALOOSA — They’ll wear crimson and the jersey will say Alabama, but the team entering Bud Walton Arena this evening won’t look a lot like the one Arkansas saw a few weeks ago.
The Razorbacks couldn’t keep pace with the full-strength Tide in a 72-66 loss Jan. 28 in Tuscaloosa. But Alabama has since has endured a February filled with suspensions.
Still, it won’t matter much that Tony Mitchell has been suspended for the season and JaMychal Green won’t make the trip with the Tide — at least not for Razorback coach Mike Anderson. He said preparations remain the same for the 6 p.m. rematch in Fayetteville.
Game film of big games from freshmen Trevor Lacey, Rodney Cooper and Nick Jacobs stands out, along with recent performances by 7-footers Carl Engstrom and Moussa Gueye.
“Now the young guys have chance to really show a lot of their ability,” Anderson said. “And they’ve done well. Of course when you have Trevor (Releford) running the show, you have a chance. And a guy like (Andrew) Steele, he’s an iron man. He just does the little things. They’ve held the ship together.”
With four games left before the SEC tournament, neither team can afford a slip-up.
