On Tuesday evening at Coleman Coliseum, Mo Williams comes home.
Williams played point guard for Alabama basketball from 2001-03 before playing 13 seasons in the NBA. Now, Williams is the head coach of Jackson State, who will travel to play Alabama on Tuesday.
While Alabama is coming off of a 100-90 loss to Gonzaga in the C.M. Newton Classic, the Crimson Tide is off to a solid 9-2 start — including not one, but two wins over No. 1-ranked opponents in North Carolina and Houston. It’s been an impressive start for Alabama, which couldn’t be more opposite that of Jackson State.
Over its first 11 games, the Tigers have a record of 1-10. It’s lone win was a 69-68 victory over SMU, but that is the extent of the team’s success. Jackson State’s worse loss of the season was also its most recent, a 102-52 loss to Texas Tech.
The game might not amount to much on Alabama’s NCAA Tournament resume, but it will still provide an opportunity for the Crimson Tide to get back in its rhythm heading into SEC play after the Christmas holiday break.

Alabama was able to cut into the Gonzaga lead at multiple points in the second half, but the Crimson Tide’s defense could not stop the Bulldogs’s offense.
