FAST FACT

13 NUMBER OF TEAMS

Alabama will play this season that finished in the top 100 of the RPI in 2010--11. The Crimson Tide missed the Big Dance largely due to a weak nonconference schedule.

BEST CASE

Trevor Lacey becomes one of the top freshmen in the nation, and his hot shooting helps Alabama advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2004.

WORST CASE

'Bama's five freshmen never jell with the big three of JaMychal Green, Tony Mitchell and Trevor Releford, and Alabama again winds up in the NIT.
