It’s not often that we hear the Alabama Crimson Tide are trying to upset the Florida Gators, but that is exactly what is happening on Thursday night. The Tide are trying to find a way to upset No. 6 Florida and get a huge win to help boost their confidence.
That confidence is being boosted early, as the Tide managed to stave off a turnover, get the ball back and turn the whole situation into points.
They have a long way to go before they are considered anywhere near as good as their football team, but the Alabama Crimson Tide basketball team still has a lot of swagger that gets overshadowed by the prowess of the school’s football team.
They’ll need that swagger and a little more, as while Bama has a stout football team, Florida’s basketball team is one of the top ten units in the country at the moment.
