I just want to start off saying that I never thought that I would be this excited about making it to the finals of the NIT…but I am, I really am.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again. If you are not paying attention to Alabama basketball - you are missing out. What Anthony Grant is doing at The Capstone is something special, that can not be denied. This program is on the rise and I believe that if we can get our passionate and loyal fan base behind being a basketball school that we should have no problem getting back to where we were during the Wimp Sanderson era.
I will have a better breakdown of tonight’s game in the morning but I just wanted to point out how intense the plyers and assistants reacted to the win while Coach Grant stays solid as a rock. Many might even say Nick-Saban-like, and we all know what an attitude like that yields.
