The latest rival in the SEC will be in women’s hoops. Today, Alabama will be facing Tennessee in the quarterfinal of the SEC women’s basketball tournament.
Coming off the back of a three-game winning streak, Alabama is flying high at the end of their season.
Currently, they’re (17-12), and ranked No. 10 in the SEC.
In their last game, against the No. 6 ranked Georgia Bulldogs, the Crimson Tide dominated the game, where they won by 12 points. As a team, Alabama shot 50% from the three-point line, making nine of them.
Two standouts of the team include the two senior guards, Brittany Davis and Megan Abrams. Over the past two games, the guards have combined a total of 45 points per game. If these stats continue, Tennesse will have a tough game ahead.
The third-ranked SEC Lady Volunteers (22-7), have had success all season.
They’ve made a name for themselves on the defensive end. As a team, they’ve averaged 6.5 steals per game. The two Jordan guards: Jordan Horston and Jordan Walker, both averaged over a steal a game.
Their offense worked through their all-around star guard Jordan Horston. She has averaged 16.2 points per game, 9.4 rebounds and four assists. As well as one block to go along with her steals. Unfortunately, the Lady Volunteers will be without their star guard tonight. It’s going to be an uphill battle for Tennesse.
Tip-off will begin at 9:30 p.m. in Knoxville. The winner of the game will match up against whoever takes the win in the Kentucky vs. LSU game.
