Alabama Basketball To Headline Saturday Night Slate in Birmingham
The No. 1 seeded Alabama Crimson Tide is set for its second round game in the NCAA Tournament. The Tide will take on No. 8 seed Maryland after the Terrapins defeated the West Virginia Mountaineers 67-65.
Alabama and Maryland will play the second game in the Saturday session, meaning the Tide will likely tip off at 8:40 p.m. CT. Those looking for TV coverage can view the game on TBS.
Tickets will be challenging to come by as both Alabama and Auburn are playing in the same session in the same region. The Auburn Tigers will try to play the spoiler role as they take on No. 1 seed Houston in the first game of the session at 6:10 p.m. CT.
Alabama fans can get into their seats early and pull on Kelvin Sampson and the Houston Cougars and then watch as the Crimson Tide plays its final game in the state of Alabama for the season.
Should the Tide emerge victorious, Alabama will advance to the Louisville region and will play the winner of No. 5 seed San Diego State vs. No. 13 Furman.
