Former Alabama Forward Keith Askins Reflects on Alabama Basketball’s 1987 SEC Title [Audio]
The Alabama Crimson Tide returns to Coleman Coliseum for a 6 PM tip-off Wednesday against Missouri.
While Avery Johnson’s squad looks to build upon a 3-1 start in SEC play, a group of former players and coaches will reunite to celebrate one of the Alabama’s best seasons in program history.
The 1986-1987 team finished as the ninth ranked team in the country, posted a 28-5 record and won both the SEC regular season and tournament crowns en route to a Sweet 16 appearance.
A key contributor to that championship team joined his former coach Wimp Sanderson along with co-host Barry Sanderson on Inside the Locker Room.
Former Alabama and NBA forward Keith Askins averaged 2.9 points per game as a true freshman on the 1987 team.
During his conversation with Wimp and Barry Sanderson, Askins reflected on his career at Alabama including his recruitment at Alabama, his memories of the 1986-1987 season and his relationship with his former college coach.
The former Alabama forward played nine seasons for the Miami Heat and has been an assistant coach with the Heat for 14 seasons. In 2013, the Heat promoted Askins to their position as director of college and pro scouting.
