Alabama Lost To Kentucky 73-67 in SEC Tournament

The Alabama men's basketball team fought valently only to fall short 73-67 against Kentucky today. The Tide at one point had a 11 point advantage over the #2 team in the country and apparently had their backs against the wall, when the size and speed of Kentucky wore Alabama down late.

I believe however, that this game is a good sign of the direction that Alabama is taking with its young prodigy head basketball coach, Anthony Grant. Grant has essentially had to play with the card that were dealt to him when he came to Alabama. Look for Grant to begin to get the players that fit his system to build something great for the future.

We seen glimmers of hope late this season with a late season 3 game winning streak and a close battle over Kentucky where we even beat them in rebounding 45-33 and had them down by 11 points. The truth is, we just did not have the talent level that Calipari brought to KY in his first year to add to the superb play of a senior in Patrick Patterson. Today, Patterson scored 20 and Eric Bledsoe 10 for Kentucky. DeMarcus Cousins chipped in 7 points & 8 boards.

Oh well...at least it ain't long until the A-day game!! 🙂

ROLL TIDE!
