As seen: No. 4 Alabama Basketball in Missouri

Mizzou Arena.

That’s where dreams die — at least for Alabama basketball and head coach Nate Oats. Since arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2019, Oats has yet to win in Columbia, Mo. — and that includes the 2020-21 team, which won the SEC championship and made the Sweet 16.

Since 2012-13, the Crimson Tide has visited “CoMo” seven times and lost five of the competitions – including the last three.

But this year could be different. Alabama (16-2, 6-0 SEC) is flawless at the top of the SEC as it stands now. The Crimson Tide also has perhaps the best player in college basketball on their side in true freshman Brandon Miller.
