Will Alabama Basketball Be No. 1 in the AP Poll on Monday?

Who would’ve thought that the Alabama Crimson Tide would have been atop the polls in mid-January?

Well, it isn’t yet — but the Crimson Tide (17-2, 7-0 SEC) does have a chance.

Alabama took care of business in tough circumstances this week. Following the arrest of former player Darius Miles, the Crimson Tide had two SEC road games on deck — and won both by a combined 33 points.

And Alabama also got some help.

Well. 1 Houston, who the Crimson Tide beat on Dec. 10, lost to a bad Temple team on its home floor Saturday afternoon. Well. 2 Kansas lost its second game of the week against No. 14 TCU — just four days after losing to No. 13 Kansas State on Tuesday night. Well. 3 Purdue won all three of its games last week against Michigan State, Minnesota and Maryland. But the Boilermakers struggled mightily in their most recent game against the Terrapins on Sunday afternoon.
