  • I know very little about basketball. But what's frustrating to me is that they never seem to have any urgency at the end of the games.

    • Avery has lost the team. It took a lottery pick for us to limp in the tournament last year. Why give him another year? it’s been the same thing every year.

      I see people mentioning the lack of talent we have. Ok, fine. But the talent we have should never lose to a&m twice and Georgia state. Ffs, if he wins the easy ones, we wouldn’t even be a bubble team.

      • Bama looking decent today. Implosion in the second half yet to come.

        • Good news, guys - Bama basketball is practicing LESS!

          Avery Johnson said on Monday that his Alabama Crimson Tide basketball team was still working hard heading into the final four games of the regular season — but that it was also trying to work smarter.
          In eliminating what he called “a lot of waste” in Alabama’s practice time, Johnson said he relied on advice from a coach with a track record of having his teams peaking as the SEC Tournament approached: former Crimson Tide head coach Wimp Sanderson. As a result, Johnson has reduced practices that used to well past the two-hour mark down to 75 minutes, a schedule that worked against Vanderbilt and remained in place as UA prepared for tonight’s game against South Carolina.
          “It’s something I’ve talked to Wimp about in the past,” Johnson said. “He used to do the same thing during this time of year.

          “Leading up to the Vanderbilt game, we had two of our shorter practices of the year. We took out a lot of drills that really weren’t helping us. We don’t just slide into practice any more. We start with a lot of energy. We are (practicing) about 75 minutes now, where in the past it could go to 140 minutes."
          It may not be a bad idea, but cutting 65 minutes off a 140 minute practice seems like admitting to very poorly ran practices. The rest of the article: https://www.timesdaily.com/sports/na...c887c9dbd.html

            We still leaked oil coming down the stretch against Vandy. Having said that, it probably couldn't hurt. What they were doing previously certainly wasn't working.

            • He might consider not practicing. At least that would give them an excuse for some of the same things we still do, like failure to run an inbounds play.....

                Maybe that was one of the useless drills they cut out.

                • In fairness, I've noticed a couple of different inbounds plays in the couple of games I watched. But that's been 3 or more games ago now.

                    • Maybe the short practices are paying off. Pretty high energy game so far.

                      • Bama leads 31-25 at the half. South Carolina is only shooting 19% from the field. A large part of that has been a really good defensive effort from Bama. Bama is only 1/6 on FTs.

                        • That lead ain't near high enough for our second half shenanigans.

                          • We need to get a 4th foul on Silva ASAP.
