Tide Split

Mark Gottfried has divided his team and announced his squads for Thursday night's Crimson and White Scrimmage.

The 14th-ranked Alabama men's basketball team is playing an intrasquad scrimmage in the back gym of Coleman Coliseum at 6:30 p.m. CST Thursday in the auxiliary gym at the back of Coleman Coliseum. Admission is free and fans can stay afterwards for an autograph session with the coaches and players. Doors open around 5:45 p.m. and seating is limited in the back gym so fans are encouraged to arrive early to get a seat.

Alabama Head Coach Mark Gottfried will have his assistants coach the two teams while he observes (and perhaps interjects on the play).

The Crimson Team will be coached by Philip Pearson and will include Ron Steele, Richard Hendrix, Evan Brock, Alonzo Gee, Yamene Coleman and Brandon Hollinger.

Tom Asbury and Eugene Harris will coach the White Team of Chuck Davis, Jermareo Davidson, Justin Jonus, Jean Felix, Brandon Davis, Greg Cage and John Dill.

Alabama will play an exhibition game at the Mitchell Center in Mobile against Spring Hill College on November 10, then have its season-opening game in remodeled Coleman Coliseum at 7 p.m. November 15 in the first round of the Pre-Season NIT against Miami of Ohio.

Coleman Coliseum will be redidcated on December 7 when Bama hosts Notre Dame. Tipoff will be at 6 p.m. CST and the game will be nationally telecast by ESPN.
