Hear Chris Stewart’s final call of Alabama’s Elite Eight victory

Crimson Tide Sports Network’s Chris Stewart is one of the best in the business when it comes to play-by-play broadcasting and he continues to display that fact throughout every game of Alabama’s magical run.

With a trademark “Let’s get out of here!” Stewart got to say the words that he has longed to say for more than 20 years of calling Tide hoops games.

He got to declare to everyone listening that the Alabama Crimson Tide is headed to the Final Four for the first time in program history.

“The Tide rises in the West, and the champions of THIS regional are headed to their first Final Four in school history! 89-82 is your final! Alabama! Alabama! Alabama BASKETBALL is headed to the Final Four!” Stewart proclaimed.

After a heart breaking loss last season in which what was likely the most talented team in school history lost in the Sweet Sixteen for the 10th time in the tortured history of Alabama basketball, an unexpected run for the ages puts the Tide in its first-ever Final Four.

Stewart, who has been calling Alabama’s basketball games for two decades, was recently announced as Eli Gold’s replacement for football games as well.

While Stewart will deliver countless more iconic calls on the court and on the field throughout the duration of his career, perhaps there is none that could ever top the words he got to say Saturday night in Los Angeles.
