Led by "Super Soph" Antonio McDyess, Alabama entered the 1994-1995 season ranked inside the Top 25. After going 20-8 during the regular season the Crimson Tide beat Tennessee and Georgia to earn a birth in the SEC Tournament Championship game. A loss to #5 Arkansas didn't hurt their NCAA tournament resume as Bama earned the #5 seed in the East Region.
An overtime thriller against #12 seed Penn put Alabama within one win of reaching the Sweet 16 but a loss to #4 seed Oklahoma State put an end to the Crimson Tide's successful season.
