Alabama sets date, location for 2022 matchup with Gonzaga
Alabama was a menace to the top teams in men’s college basketball last season. Though the Tide didn’t have a great year following a 2020-21 season that saw them win both the SEC regular-season and tournament titles, they did knock off 3 of last year’s Final Four teams.
The Tide beat Houston and Baylor, but perhaps their most impressive win was in December out in Seattle in a “neutral-site” game against Gonzaga. In that matchup, the Tide picked up an incredible 91-82 win.
Now, during nonconference play this year, the Tide will play the Bulldogs once again, this time in a “neutral-site” game at Legacy Arena in Birmingham in the C.M. Newton Classic. As you can see below, the game will take place on Dec. 17:

Alabama finished last season 19-14 overall, losing to Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. We’ll see if this season goes better for Nate Oats and the Tide.
