Alabama Crimson Tide
Record: 20-11 (12-6 SEC)
Key Wins: Kentucky, South Dakota State, Villanova, Tennessee
Trevor Releford's game-winning 50-foot buzzer-beater to defeat Georgia 61-58 on Saturday may have been miraculous, but the Alabama Crimson Tide still have a lot of work left to do.
ESPN's Joe Lunardi currently has the Crimson Tide in his "next four out."
This means Alabama needs to win at least two to three games in the SEC tournament. Of course, about eight other teams on the bubble would need to have bad outings in their conference tournaments as well.
Alabama is led by junior guard Trevor Releford, whose averaging 15.6 points per game, and sophomore guard Trevor Lacey, whose averaging 11.9 points per game.
Releford and Lacey will need to be key in the SEC tournament, if Alabama wants to have any chance of making the Big Dance.
Alabama will get the winner of Mississippi State vs. Tennessee on Friday.
A Tennessee loss, which is doubtful seeming Mississippi State has struggled all season long, would help Alabama's chances of moving up into the "last four in" grouping.
A Crimson Tide win over Tennessee, though, would also be beneficial in boosting their resume. Alabama could take down Tennessee in the quarterfinals, but the chances of them knocking off Tennessee and defeating Florida the next day are slim.
The SEC isn't as strong this season, but it would be an incredible run for the Crimson Tide if they somehow made the championship game.
Alabama lost three of their last five games of the regular season. That doesn't help their chances, nor will only winning one game in SEC tournament.
The Crimson Tide are going to be one of the teams left disappointed on Selection Sunday.
