The Crimson Tide women's basketball team was a strong team in mid-late-1970s, during which it played in three AIAW women's championships and one WNIT Tournament. However, starting in the 1980s, the Crimson Tide would suffer a tournament-appearance drought and would only have two postseason appearances during that decade. The trend would change starting in 1991, when the team would make it to the postseason 11 times, one of which was for a Final Four game. However, the drought would return starting in the 2002-2003 season and would last until the 2015-2016 season, except for one season (2010-2011) when the team would make it to the third round of the WNIT. Since the 2015-2016 season, the team has made it to WNIT Tournament play three times, thanks to strong players on the team like Cierra Johnson. She was a junior in 2018-2019 and was the team leader in points per game with 14. Grab your Alabama Crimson Tide women's basketball tickets at StubHub today.
