Break out the celebratory champagne boys, because Alabama actually won an SEC tournament game!
In all honestly, I was sort of expecting a victory tonight. I know it’s well after the fact, but I did having a gut feeling. Gottfried is something like 3-11 against Billy D. and Florida in his 10 years, which isn’t fantastic. Still, you have to give him credit for how we started this game. Halftime adjustments are another matter, but we certainly came to play. I just hope Riley will continue to dominate.
Next is Mississippi State, who swept us during our darkest period of the season. They play extremely tough on defense, so we should expect to actually get hit in the face to start things off tomorrow. Bernardo is a shot blocking clinic in Nikes, and their team should be fairly rested. We’ll see what happens, but I’m feeling somewhat positive about this game as well. I think we can keep things close, but probably fall by about 5-6 points in the end. We’ll see what happens.
