VIDEO: SEC Basketball Media Days – Featuring Alabama

By


Last Friday, Anthony Grant & Wendell Hudson talked Alabama basketball. Both teams have reason for optimism this season. The men's team returns one of the top players in the country, 2nd team All American JaMychal Green. Green spoke at Media days and spoke about his intentions to step up and set the example for the new blood on Alabama's team. Alabama comes in the season ranked 17th in the nation.

JaMychal Green has looked impressive in the off-season in playing for USA Basketball in the World University Games. This summer, Green came in second on the team in scoring with 12.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game as the squad played to a 7-1 record. He lost 17 pounds in the off-season, so look for him to be able to run the floor better and have more endurance.

The ladies team is expected by many to be the best that Wendell Hudson has had since he first became the ladies head coach in 2007. Led by senior leader Ericka Russell, the Tide ladies look to improve mightily this year. Hudson said one of the keys to successful recruiting as of late came from the impact of Nick Saban on the program. Coach Saban has went over and beyond his call of duty to meet the recruits and spend time with them. Hudson indicated that Alabama has signed three junior college All-Americans for instant impact, and two of them were on a 32-1 championship team last year, and another player was on a national championship team in junior college. So there is proven winners in place this year to take Alabama's ladies basketball to a new level of play.

Looking forward to seeing both teams take it to the hoops.
