How Alabama basketball handles success and fights complacency

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Alabama has ranked its highest in the polls since 2002. With 11 games remaining in the regular season, the Crimson Tide is 17-2 (7-0 SEK) two wins away from making last year’s standings and conference totals win.

More than halfway through the season, amid huge successes, head coach Nate Oats is still using an 11-man rotation at times, and with Nimari Burnett returning from injury, the starting lineup could change yet again.
