Alabama Basketball: Thank goodness for Southern Mississippi

KNOXVILLE, TN - JANUARY 19: Alex Reese #3 of the Alabama Crimson Tide drives the lane with Admiral Schofield #5 of the Tennessee Volunteers defending during the first half of their game at Thompson-Boling Arena on January 19, 2019 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

They got their sixth Friday night as Nate Oats’ Alabama basketball team won 83-68.

The Crimson Tide jumped out to a 20-4 lead, looking like it would run USM off the court and maybe onto the nearby beach.

James ‘Beetle’ Bolden came off the Tide bench to lead the team in scoring with 23 points.

When lesser teams like Alabama basketball and Southern Mississippi enter a tough tournament, being realistic is important.

Games this soon against North Carolina and Iowa State are unfair measurements for Nate Oats.
