"We've got young guys playing, I think putting them in some big games like this gives them a lot experience early on. Both these guys are freshmen, we're in the middle of December and look at how many big games they've already played in their careers as freshmen. You know, that's goes a long way as they start performing more like upperclassmen by the time you get to SEC play," said Alabama basketball head coach Nate Oats.
