In News by Blake Lovell

Alabama guard will be a game-time decision will be a game-time decision for Tuesday’s game against South Carolina due to illness.

Ingram is one of four Crimson Tide players averaging in double figures, with the sophomore adding 11.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

He also leads the team in minutes at 30.4 minutes per contest.

The Tide are riding a two-game losing streak after opening SEC play with a 79-57 win over then No. 5 Texas A&M.

Lovell’s Analysis

It’s certainly been a disappointing start to conference play for the Crimson Tide, and not having an offensive weapon like Ingram against a defensive-minded South Carolina squad wouldn’t be ideal.

Alabama scored only 46 points in the loss to Georgia, and Collin Sexton scored half of those with a 23-point outing.

So, this team needs a player like Ingram on the court in what may be a low scoring game.

Avery Johnson’s team is still the better overall team, but having Ingram on the floor would make Tide fans feel a little better about getting back on track.
