The No. 10 Alabama Crimson Tide will look to remain undefeated in SEC play with a tough task as they head on the road to take on the 18th-ranked Missouri Tigers on Saturday.

Alabama (15-4, 10-0 SEC) has been on a roll, winning 11 of their last 12 games including Wednesday night’s 78-60 home game against the LSU Tigers. Sophomore guard Jaden Shackelford scored a team-high 19 points and is the leading scorer. Alabama has four players averaging double digit points per game. Senior forward and Yale transfer Jordan Bruner hasn’t played since January 12th with a knee injury and will not suit up for the Crimson Tide.

Missouri (12-3, 5-3 SEC) has played very well as of late too, winning five of their last six games including Wednesday night’s 75-70 home win over the Kentucky Wildcats. Dru Smith was the star for the Tigers with 26 points on 6 of 11 shooting from the floor. He did much of his damage at the free throw line where he hit 12 of 14 shots. Alabama’s defense ranks third in adjusted efficiency, so the Tigers will have their work cut out for them.
