Alabama Basketball Team Looking for Positive Finish

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama is no longer playing for a Southeastern Conference title. An NCAA tournament at-large bid is out of the question, and so is finishing the regular season with a winning league record.

So what does the Crimson Tide have to gain from its final four games before the SEC tournament?

Coach Mark Gottfried said it's been a difficult year, but his team wants to finish on a high note.

The Tide (14-13, 3-9) has dropped four of its last five games and two in a row leading up to a visit from Arkansas (18-8, 7-5) tomorrow night. 'Bama is now tied with LSU for last in the Western Division.

Arkansas handed the Tide one of its tougher defeats, 71-67 in overtime on January 13th. While the Razorbacks are battling with Mississippi for a Western Division title, Alabama is just trying to snap out of its season-long funk.
