It's been quite the experience getting to watch SFA rise up in the ranks of college basketball over the past few years. This year, it will be no different. However, there is one big game that everyone is already talking about.

Sunday, December 30th, SFA will be hosting the Alabama Crimson Tide, in William R. Johnson Coliseum. There has not been an official time set for tip-off. However, it doesn't really matter, because if I know Lumberjack fans - and I would say that I do - they're going to be posted up hours, if not days before the event all around the coliseum. They'll be waiting for their chance to be the first into the gym to get the good seats for all the SFA vs. Alabama action.

*Side note: It would probably benefit you to get there early too, because there will probably be some awesome tailgating cuisine among them, as well.*

Yes, there are still a few months between now and the game. However, it's not too early to prepare. So, get your purple gear ready, your axe handles polished, your life-size cut-outs of your favorite Lumberjack athletes - yes, the SFA fans actually get these made just for basketball season - and show up on December 30, 2018 at the William R. Johnson Coliseum on the SFA campus for the showdown of SFA vs. Alabama.
