Alabama Game Notes

Alabama center Charles Bediako is questionable for Wednesday night’s game with a knee injury. Bediako is averaging 5.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game in 20.5 minutes per contest for the Crimson Tide this year.

One of Alabama’s most important players is junior guard Mark Sears. The Muscle Shoals, Alabama native is second on the Crimson Tide in scoring with 14 points per game, and he’s second on the club with 53 made three-pointers this season. Sears is also leading Alabama in steals per game with 1.4 and his defense could prove pivotal in this SEC showdown.
