Just In:Alabama occupies Grand Canyon Gym for Final Four practice following elimination of…

Alabama basketball team practices at Grand Canyon University before Final Four clash with UCONN, the same school they defeated in the NCAA Tournament. Adding insult to injury, Alabama now utilizes Antelopes’ facilities after eliminating them from the tournament. Ouch!
The Crimson Tide have been traveling across the West Coast throughout the Big Dance, playing games in Spokane, Los Angeles, and now, Glendale. During their travels, they’ve had to locate nearby gyms for practice sessions. However, in this particular situation, the choice of location couldn’t have been worse for the hosts!
Alabama beat Grand Canyon in the Round of 32, effectively sending the Lopes packing for the offseason. They probably didn’t expect to see their nemesis again just two weeks later.
The Alabama social media team posted a series of photos of Final Four practice as the Crimson Tide prep for a matchup with top-seeded Connecticut – and that GCU logo is easily visible a midcourt.
Location aside, the Tide have a tall task ahead of them.
UCONN has continued its March Madness dominance following last year’s national championship, dispatching each of their first four NCAA Tournament foes by an average of 28 points. Utter dominance!
Alabama, meanwhile, has been tested, winning their two games last weekend against UNC and Clemson by a combined nine points.

Can the Crimson Tide find a way to keep things close with the Huskies on Saturday and pull off the upset? These practice sessions just might help, and they’ll have Grand Canyon to thank if so!
