Alabama returns home with a strong 3-1 start to conference play on the ledger. The Tide will now welcome the miserable Missouri Tigers to Coleman Coliseum tonight, in a game that Avery Johnson's group simply can't afford to lose. The Tide have thus far avoided bad losses this year (though Texas is doing its best to change that), but a loss to this Mizzou team would be that and then some. The NIT Selection Committee would not take kindly to that type of loss.
The game tips at 6:00 PM CST and will be televised by ESPNU.
