The Crimson Tide took to the podium this morning. The Tide predicted to finish 6th in the league this year, but that's not where head coach Anthony Grant and point Guard Trevor Releford project their team. "We want to be a team that can compete for championships," Grant said. "As a program you always want to continue to improve and take that next step, and I think that's where we are."

Releford is using last season NIT experience as motivation. "We don't want to play in the NIT this year," Releford said. "We want to make that next stride as a program playing in the NCAA Tournament."

Alabama tips off the season November 8th in Dallas against Oklahoma.
