Record: 19-9, 11-3 in SEC play
Quality Wins: Kentucky
Bad Losses: St. Peter's, Iowa, Ole Miss, Providence, Arkansas
Breakdown: St. Peter's? This is by far the worst loss of anyone on this list.
The Crimson Tide had an above average non-conference schedule, but weren't able to win any games they needed to. They lost to all the low end conference teams they scheduled including Iowa, Seton Hall, Providence, and Oklahoma State.
Alabama has been able to roll through the SEC, which isn't saying a whole lot. Their side of the conference includes Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU, and Auburn. Come on SEC West, you're killing Alabama!
None of those teams are even mentioned being in the tournament, and possibly NIT for that matter. They did beat Kentucky which was huge, but the Wildcats haven't exactly been the model of consistency.
The Tide are led by JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell, both of whom hold their own in the paint. Fortunately for 'Bama they have two huge games left. They square off against Florida tonight, followed by at large hopeful Georgia on Saturday.
Tourney Chances: Alabama has a decent shot to make it. Playing at Florida tonight will be tough, but if they can pull it off they will greatly increase their chances.
Alabama also plays Georgia the last game of the season, which is another "must win" for the Tide. Alabama will have to win at least one of these games, followed by an impressive SEC tournament run.
Verdict: In the SEC almost anyone can beat anyone. Expect 'Bama to win at least one of their remaining games, followed by a couple wins in the SEC tourney.
Whether that is enough to make it or not is entirely up to the selection committee.
If freshman point guard Trevor Releford isn't rattled by the crowd tonight at Florida, anticipate 'Bama to be in this game till the end. However, if Florida gets off to a fast start it will be all but over.
Get ready for Georgia, and count on winning more games than expected in the SEC tourney
