Tide Tries to Move on Without Mitchell

By

anthony grant basketball coach alabama men'sAlabama heads to Arkansas tonight to face the struggling Razorbacks. Unlike the Hogs, Bama has seem to have found itself over the past few games and the hard work finally paid off against Tennessee.

Despite not winning a road game so far this season, Mike Anderson's Hogs were undefeated at home this season, however, that came to an end when Florida came into Fayetteville and spanked the Hogs by 30.

Last Saturday's win without JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell hopefully has given Bama confidence now that they know that they can win without their leading scorers and now that the decision has been made on both, the team can now just focus on basketball.

"I think our guys have moved forward," he said. "We understand, like everything else, you can only control what you can control. For our guys, it's about trying to get prepared for the opponent that's in front of us and not dealing with the distractions - trying to eliminate those as much as we can,"said Tide head coach Anthony Grant.

"We've got a lot that we're playing for and I think our guys are excited about the opportunity to play and compete we understand that the biggest thing right now is the challenge that Arkansas presents."

A win at Arkansas especially with the Hogs struggling at the moment, puts Bama one step closer to a guaranteed spot in the NCAA Tournament and it would also help with seeding in the SEC Tournament as well.

A bad loss could put Bama back on the bubble having to fight for its NCAA life with games coming up at Ole Miss and two home games with a tough Mississippi State team and hard nose Auburn team as well.

Let's hope that the Tide can step it up tonight against the Hogs. Tip-off of tonight's game will be 6pm on ESPN2.
