Alabama Earns A No. 3 Seed In 2017 National Invitation Tournament..

on Monday, March 13, 2017

      Crimson Tide Men's Basketball:

The University of Alabama men's basketball team earned a No. 3 seed in the 2017 National Invitation Tournament and will host the No. 6 seed Richmond Spiders in Coleman Coliseum on Tuesday, March 14, in the opening round of the event. The Tide and the Spiders will tip off at 8:15 p.m. CT on ESPN2.

"We are excited about participating in the NIT for a second year in a row," head coach Avery
Johnson said.

"We felt we had a fantastic finish at the SEC Tournament overall in terms of winning games over Mississippi State and South Carolina. We came up a little short of beating a Kentucky team that was a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. We think we had a nice end to the year. We played with energy and improved in a lot of areas offensively. We are excited for our seniors to continue playing and happy that our younger guys will get more games in postseason play."

The winner of Tuesday's game will face the victor of No. 2 seed Clemson and No. 7 seed Oakland at a time and date to be determined.

Iowa is the top seed in the Crimson Tide's quadrant, while the other NIT No. 1 seeds include Syracuse, California and Illinois State.

Alabama is one of eight SEC teams to earn a berth in either the NCAA Tournament or NIT. Joining the Crimson Tide in the NIT is Ole Miss and Georgia, while Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina and Vanderbilt each earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
