A fun night was had by all Thursday when the Tuscaloosa Tip-Off Club held its annual preseason barbeque featuring the Crimson Tide’s basketball team. This year’s event was held at Snow Hinton Park in Tuscaloosa and gave Tide hoops fans a great opportunity to meet and eat with their favorite Crimson Tide players.
Head coach Mark Gottfried and crew open practice in one week, on Friday, October 14th. Opening night for the Tide will be November 15 when it plays host to Miami-Ohio in the first round of the Preseason NIT. That game will give fans the first official glimpse of the newly renovated Coleman Coliseum. Alabama Basketball season tickets are on sale now and can be ordered through this website.
