With only six games left to play in the season, Alabama finds themselves in a tie for 4th place in the SEC. After a rough loss to Kentucky that came almost exclusively by way of turnovers and missed free throws, the Tide will try to get back on track against the Missouri Tigers, who are playing their best ball of the season. That may not be the highest of bars to clear, but it should be noted that Mizzou has won their last two home conference games.
A loss to the Tigers would be a monumental disappointment that would be tough to recover from, so Alabama really can't afford to drop one tonight. There is still plenty to play for this season for Avery Johnson's team.
The game tips at 7:30 PM CST and will be televised on the SEC Network.
