SEC Tournament Semifinals Picks: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Florida Gators
Date: Saturday, March 16th, 1:00 ET
Location: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, TN
Alabama vs. Florida Live TV: ABC
Two of the SEC teams that were fighting to get into the NCAA Tournament are already out of the dance picture, and now, Alabama is probably the next to get a move on. The Crimson Tide probably have to win this game if they want to have a shot to get into March Madness, but it is going to be a tough road to sow against the Gators, easily the best team in the SEC. We would really like to think that one of these SEC teams is going to step it up and get the job done in a game that it has to have, but there is very little indication that the Crimson Tide have that ability. Thus far this year against the best teams on their schedule, they have been beaten by Florida by 12 and Missouri by 16. They at least stuck around with Cincinnati, losing by two, but they were trashed by VCU by 19. Meanwhile, we have seen Florida just beat the snot out of so many of the best teams in the SEC, and the LSU Tigers were the most recent of those teams to get killed in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament. Don’t be shocked if this is yet another romp from the get go, as Alabama bows out and clinches its spot in the NIT.
Alabama vs. Florida Pick: Florida Gators -13.5
SEC Semifinals Prediction: Florida 76 – Alabama 61
