LSU hosts one of the hottest teams in the SEC Wednesday night when Alabama rolls into the PMAC.

The Crimson Tide have won four games in a row upping their SEC record to 6-6 and 15-9 overall.

Retin Obasohan leads Alabama in scoring, averaging 16.2 points per game and Shannon Hale is scoring 11.2 points per contest.

Alabama is averaging 67.5 points per game and is shooting 43 percent from the field. 

LSU rallied to win the first contest 72-70 in Tuscaloosa last month. Ben Simmons led the Tiger attack with 23 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

The Tigers are currently projected to be a No. 7 seed in Joe Lunardi's Bracketology and a No. 10 seed in USA Today's updated brackets.

Tipoff for Wednesday's SEC battle is set for 8 p.m. on the SEC Network.
