Cecil Hurt of The Tuscaloosa News joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier to talk college hoops and provide an insight to the new additions to Alabama's men's basketball coaching staff, before diving into Nick Saban's draft comments.

Hurt discussed briefly that Head coach Nate Oats will be assisted by Charlie Henry and Bryan Hodgson, as well as Antoine Pettway. Then dived into the importance of bringing back Kira Lewis and John Petty.

"With the way the SEC is now with potentially 7 or 8 teams receiving bids," Hurt told Reier. "I think that Alabama can feel like they are relevant in that mix."
