Alabama Men’s Basketball Set to Compete in Charity Exhibition
The Alabama men's basketball team announced a charity exhibition game against Southern Illinois on Saturday, October 29. 2022.
All proceeds will be donated to the Community Service Programs of West Alabama's Alberta Head Start Program.
The game will be played in Tuscaloosa Ala., at Foster Auditorium, at 2 p.m. CT.
The two teams will play a friendly 40-minute exhibition game. This matchup is the third time these two teams have played against each other. Alabama leads the all-time series against the Salukis 2-0, with the last matchup coming in 2004, where the Crimson Tide edged out a 65-64 win.
This will be the third time in four years that the Crimson Tide has participated in a charity game. In last year's matchup, Alabama defeated the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns 73-68.
The Alabama regular season opens up on Monday, November 7, 2022, as the team hosts the Longwood Lancers at Coleman Coliseum.
