It’s been six years, but the Alabama Crimson Tide are FINALLY back in the NCAA Tournament!

After a season in which star freshman Collin Sexton shined, the Tide earned themselves an at-large bid. While they didn’t get to 20 wins, they were still a very heart 19-15 with several quality wins. Including one over the 1 seed in the SEC Tournament, Auburn, in the SEC Tournament Quarterfinals.

The Tide will play their first game in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They will play as a 9 seed against the Virginia Tech Hokies in the East Region.
