Alabama Crimson Tide basketball has made it to the first March Madness Final Four in program history and the team led by Mark Sears and Grant Nelson will take on the elite UCONN Huskies with a national championship berth on the line. Experts aren’t liking the Tide’s chances to move on, however.

Head Coach Nate Oats has discussed the team’s performance on this memorable March Madness run, and appears confident in his team’s ability to take on any team in the nation. The road to the Final Four has gone through the College of Charleston, Grand Canyon University, the North Carolina Tarheels and the Clemson Tigers.

UCONN is the second No. 1 seed that Alabama has faced after taking down No. 1 seed North Carolina in the Sweet 16. It will be a difficult challenge for the Crimson Tide, but if stars like Sears, Nelson, Nick Pringle and Jarin Stevenson can stay hot, then they have a chance at a major upset. The offense will also be boosted by the return of Latrell Wrightsell, who had been out with a head injury since the round of 32.
