Know your enemy- Gembo

The Tide rolls in Atwerp, Belgium to take on Gembo at 1 p.m. CDT today.  Gembo plays in the Division II league in Belgium.  Antwerp is Retin Obasohan's hometown, and assistant coach John Brannen played there for 2 years in the late 1990's for the Antwerp Giants of the Division I league.  Bama will play the Giants tomorrow.

Here are some highlights of Gembo beating UVA 102-97 last year.  They look a lot more athletic and fundamentally sound than the clips I saw of our previous opponent, and as I said, they beat Virginia last year so this should be a good test today.

As far as I know, once again there is no video or audio available, so follow @AlabamaMBB on twitter for updates.  I am working and won't be able to pass the information along as quickly or frequently, but will try to post updates to the extent I can.
