Alabama Basketball Podcast: Previewing the NCAA Tournament

Tide 102.9 FM

On this week’s episode of the Tide 102.9 Alabama Basketball Podcast, we take a look at what March has in store for the Crimson Tide. The program is in the NCAA Tournament for the first time under Avery Johnson and will make its first appearance in the big dance since 2012.

We dive into how Alabama made it to the tournament through its big performance in the SEC Tournament. The Tide’s resume got the final touch it needed to be given a 9 seed by the selection committee.

For those looking for coverage of the entire tournament, we have you covered in the second and third segments. First, we dive into a hypothetical run to the Final Four for Alabama and which matchups would be toughest for the Tide. We also give our best matchups, favorites and Cinderella teams for each region.

The episode finishes up with a quick look at the Virginia Tech Hokies, Alabama’s next opponent. That game will be played Thursday night on TNT.
