Villanova alumnus and basketball fan Michael Wendel, bought three billboard ads challenging the Alabama Men's Basketball team to play tougher after a close loss to then-ranked No. 18 Missouri Saturday.
While the AP (Associated-Press) top 25 did not have Alabama in their top 25 teams, Alabama received an impressive 173 votes, which is the most of any team outside of the top 25. Alabama has not been in the top 25 in the AP poll since November of 2017.
Bryan Passink, CTSN color analyst for Alabama men's basketball, joined "The Jay Barker Show with Lars Anderson and Kerry Adams" to give his thoughts on how the team has done thus far and preview their upcoming game against Baylor in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge.
