Individual player stats leading into March Madness

Individual player stats leading into March Madness

The Alabama basketball team has exceeded expectations in Nate Oatsโ€™ fourth season at the Capstone. The Tide have had enumerated contributions this season from freshman, transfers, and returning players. Overall, the entire team has gelled to achieve one common goal and that is to win a National Championship.

The incoming hype was high, but I think it safe to say that no one envisioned the hype leading to a No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Players like Brandon Miller, Noah Clowney, and Mark Sears are just a few that have led to the teamโ€™s success this season.

With that being the case, Roll Tide Wire breaks down the individual statistics from each Alabama player over the course of the โ€™22-โ€™23 season as March Madness approaches.

Season Stats: 19.6 PPG / 8.3 RPG / 2.1 APG / 45.1 FG% / 40.1 3P%

Alabama freshman sensation Brandon Miller is arguably one of the best players in college basketball. Millerโ€™s ability to be a three-level scorer and facilitator separates him from other players across the country. He has led the Tide this season and will look to continue that trend in the NCAA Tournament.

One of the key pieces to Alabamaโ€™s frontcourt is freshman Noah Clowney. The South Carolina native has coined the nickname โ€œStretchโ€ and it makes sense. He can stretch the floor and create second-chance opportunities for his teammates. Clowney is an elite rebounder on both ends of the floor. In order for Alabama to win on the glass, Clowney has to be on his A-game. If he is, opposing teams could be in for a long night.

One of the key pieces to Alabamaโ€™s backcourt joined the program last offseason via the transfer portal. Mark Sears transferred to Alabama after spending two seasons at Ohio University. Since arriving in Tuscaloosa, he has made quite the impact. Sears is a proven three-point shooter and a sneaky defender. He averages 1.2 steals per game which leads the team. If Sears can get hot from beyond-the-arc, opposing teams will be in for a whirlwind.

I think many Alabama fans would agree that Charles Bediako is the glue to the Tideโ€™s…
