From losing seasons to an appearance in the Elite Eight, Alabama basketball have seen a lot of highs and lows over the past three decades.

From 1999-2003, Erwin Dudley helped to lay the foundation for Alabama basketball's run of five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances under Mark Gottfried.

The native of Uniontown, Alabama, took home SEC Player of the Year honors during the Crimson Tide's run to an SEC regular season championship in 2002. Dudley ranks seventh in career scoring and fourth in career rebounds in the crimson and white.

Since his collegiate career ended, the former Crimson Tide star has played oversees in Israel and Turkey.

The former Alabama star will be honored as an SEC Legend during the SEC Tournament in Nashville next week and at Coleman Coliseum for tonight's game.

Prior to the game, Dudley stepped Inside the Locker Room to discuss his appearance at the game along with his career overseas.

The past SEC Player of the Year also talked about his recruitment to Alabama and the challenges for that Avery Johnson's Crimson Tide has in facing a three-point shooting team like Auburn.

You can hear tonight's game on Tide 102.9/100.9 with tip-off at 8 PM.
