Everything looked bleak for the Crimson Tide at one point during this SEC game tonight against the Missouri Tigers.
The doubt would soon be erased, however, as Alabama went on a big run in the latter half of the second half, overcoming a 14-point deficit to beat the Tigers by a score of 86-76.
Alabama shot just 43% from the floor and 33% from 3PT-range. Jaden Shackelford’s 21 points and seven rebounds helped the Tide overcome a slow start. Jahvon Quinerly tallied all 13 of his points in the second half to propel Alabama to the much-needed SEC win. JD Davison scored 17 and hit three out of four three-pointers.
Missouri hit 47% of their field goals, including 45% from three. Perimeter shooting is a weak spot for the Tigers, yet in both matchups against the Tide they lit it up from beyond the arc.
Jarron Coleman led Mizzou in scoring with 17 points. Forward Kobe Brown was much better neutralized by Nate Oats’ defense this time around than last and only managed six points, but brought down 10 boards.
The Crimson Tide improves to 4-3 in SEC play and 13-6 overall.
Missouri drops to 2-4 in SEC competition and 8-10 overall.
Next up for the Crimson Tide is an away game at Georgia to face off against the 5-14 Bulldogs on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. CST.
