Alabama Crimson Tide (12-9, 3-6 SEC) vs. Missouri Tigers (8-13, 1-8 SEC)

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The Crimson Tide will be hosting their second set of Tigers in 2016, as Missouri's version of the felines come to Tuscaloosa. They will be down a pair of reserve post players, including their best defender and rebounding threat, Jakeenan Gant, after Gant and Russell Woods were suspended from the team. This is absolutely a must-win for the Tide, as a loss to Mizzou would eliminate any slim hopes of an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, as well as severely damage their NIT resume.

There has also been some more good news for Alabama, as both Shannon Hale and Michael Kessens are suited up for the game and are expected to play.

The game tips at 2:00 PM CST and will be televised by the SEC Network.
