Alabama Basketball Proved One Thing at the SEC Tournament: It Remains Consistently Inconsistent


TAMPA, Fla. — On Thursday night inside Amalie Arena in its first game of the SEC Tournament, the consistently inconsistent defense of Alabama basketball gave its fanbase a few more reasons to scratch their collective heads.

In the Crimson Tide’s 82-76 loss that sent the team packing out of the arena, the team’s defense provided a resolute first half. In the game’s first 20 minutes, Alabama forced Vanderbilt to shoot just 26 percent from the floor and 23 percent from beyond the 3-point line.

The Crimson Tide also forced nine turnovers, converting them into seven points. In rebounds, Alabama outpaced the Commodores once again, this time by a margin of 24-17.
