Alabama selected for third straight NIT appearance.

We are the 3 seed in the Iowa quadrant, which means we will host the Richmond Spiders at 8:15 pm Tuesday night.  The game will be televised on ESPN2.  I haven't heard anything official yet, but I assume tickets will be general admission with the exception of the folks on the floor who will have first dibs at their regular seats as they have done in the past.

If we win Tuesday night we are looking at a possible rematch against Clemson if they can get by Oakland.  Also, keep in mind the experimental rules will be in effect, including re-setting team fouls at the 10 minute mark, and a 20 second shot clock when the ball is in-bounded in the front court.

I know we all wanted to get into the big show, but this is a good tournament with a lot of quality teams and a chance to gain valuable experience for our young team.  I would love to see this team make a run and keep playing as long as they can.
