NCAA Basketball Look Ahead; Wednesday, January 5, 2022
College basketball is now in full swing of the conference slate. Most teams played one or two conference games in December, but we will only be seeing conference games from now until the end of the year.
Teams have used the first weeks of the season to get ready for conference play, as now we will see which teams are contenders and which teams have been propped up by an easy non-conference slate.
With 2022 on the horizon, we will see some great conference games in the first week of the year. We highlight labama Crimson Tide vs Florida Gators.
SEC Contest; Alabama Crimson Tide Travel to Florida to Face the Gators
The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida Gators meet up in a big SEC contest. The Crimson Tide are 10-3 on the season and are ranked #19 in the country. The Gators are 9-3 on the season thus far and are currently unranked. Both teams are 3-2 in their last five games.
The Gators score 74.0 points a game while allowing 59.9 points a game. The Crimson Tide score 82.2 points a game while allowing 72.9 points a game.
This will be a close game between two teams who have some impressive wins on their resume. I lean toward Alabama to get the upset win on the road in this game. SEC matchup are always hard to predict due to the rivalry in this conference. Alabama should dominate the game but it can easily come down to the wire.
