TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's Anthony Grant says he's not
worried about his team lapsing with the SEC West title already
The Crimson Tide coach said Monday that finishing the regular
season strong is "always going to be critical," and that his
Alabama might need a good finish to be assured of an at-large
NCAA tournament berth.
Grant's team is tied with Florida for the overall Southeastern
Conference lead with a 10-2 league record. The Tide hosts Auburn on
Wednesday, then visits Mississippi and Florida before closing the
regular season against Georgia.
Alabama clinched its first SEC West crown since 2005 with
Saturday's win over Arkansas.
Grant says Alabama remains "locked in" and that it's
one-game-at-a-time approach won't change.
