Releford, 4 sophomores trying to lead Alabama

Tools

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama will sport a significantly different look this season despite having only one newcomer.

The Crimson Tide won't have four-year starter JaMychal Green patrolling the post or Tony Mitchell slashing through the lane for dunks. Instead, point guard Trevor Releford and four sophomores who logged significant playing time last season will form the nucleus of a team that broke a six-year NCAA tournament drought last season.

Coach Anthony Grant will have only 10 scholarship players. His lone signee was highly regarded forward Devonta Pollard.

Green and Mitchell were the team's top two scorers and rebounders each of the past two seasons.

Grant feels like Alabama will be a better shooting team. The Tide ranked last in the Southeastern Conference last season in 3-point shooting percentage and 3-pointers made.
