TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Alabama baseball team’s season came to a close on Monday morning after finishing the regular season and the SEC Tournament on a strong note by going 4-2 against opponents ranked in the top 25. This season, the Crimson Tide will not be competing in an NCAA Regional because they did not make the cut.
Alabama, South Carolina, and Kentucky were the only three teams from the Southeastern Conference who did not make it to the postseason tournament out of the 12 that qualified for the Southeastern Conference Tournament. Because the Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team was not picked at all, and the Alabama softball team did not advance through the regional play, the state of Alabama will not have a diamond sport participating in a game during the month of June for the first time since the year 2018.
The Crimson Tide finished the year with an overall record of 31-27, including a record of 12-17 versus SEC opponents. In conference play, the Crimson Tide struggled the most. During non-conference play, the team’s three sweeps over Xavier, Murray State, and Binghamton were the highlights.

Brad Bohannon, the head coach of the Crimson Tide, was quick to outline the reasons why he believes his squad deserved in the NCAA Tournament after the team was eliminated from the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
According to Bohannon, “Obviously we’re on the bubble, and we’ve done some pretty nice things this year,” the team has done some really fantastic things this year. “We took the series from Texas A&M, we won three of the four games against Arkansas, and we split the four games with Georgia.
performed a large number of great acts. If you ask any other team in this league, I will tell you that there are 12 teams in this league, and we have earned our spot among them. We deserved to be in last year, but this year we have a stronger pitching staff, we’re better offensively, and we’re better defensively.” “We’re lot better than last year, and we deserved to be in last year.” The first round of regional competition in the NCAA Tournament is scheduled to start on Friday, June 3, and continue through Monday, June 6.
The College World Series will begin on June 17 in Omaha, Nebraska, after the Super Regionals had been played from the 10th through the 13th of June. The Championship World Series Finals are scheduled to begin on June 25, and each of the finals will be a best-of-three series.

Did the Alabama women’s basketball team make the NCAA Tournament?
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — In a press statement issued on Sunday evening, the Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) revealed that the Alabama Crimson Tide women’s basketball team will be invited to play in the tournament in 2022. The Crimson Tide competed in the WNIT for the final time in 2018, during which it advanced all the way to the tournament’s quarterfinals.
- In spite of the fact that Alabama finished with an overall record of 17-13, the Crimson Tide’s chances of making it to the NCAA Tournament were still in doubt coming into the final stretch of the season.
- The Crimson Tide dropped eight of their next ten games after getting out to a 10-2 start in the season.
However, Alabama was able to advance to the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament by winning four of its final six games of the regular season. This result was far better than the finish that many analysts had expected for Alabama. Due to the fact that the Crimson Tide was not chosen for the March Madness tournament on Sunday, the WNIT presented the team with the next-best opportunity to capitalize on the late run it had been on throughout the season.
