It's no secret JaMychal Green is Alabama's best frontcourt player.
He's a dynamic player on both ends of the court and really might be the most important cog in this team.
But even a player of his caliber needs some help, and Alabama thought they had that help in 7'0" sophomore Moussa Gueye.
Gueye, a native of Senegal, was rated by most recruiting services as a four-star prospect and big score for Anthony Grant.
Unfortunately, he tore his ACL in a preseason pick-up game and is out.
Enter Carl Engstrom and Nick Jacobs. The 7'0" sophomore and 6'8" freshmen have been serving key minutes in Alabama's young season.
Engstrom's length creates problems for teams down low, and he has been rebounding well. Offensively, he is no threat, yet. He's too slow to make a move and has terrible hands.
Jacobs reminds me of Richard Hendrix. A big bruiser down low, he can rebound but also creates space around the basket to score.
While having Gueye back would be best, Alabama do know they have capable players who can play key minutes if needed.
