Alabama hoops downs Mizzou, clinches spot in SEC Tournament final
Alabama basketball downed No. 4 seed Mizzou Saturday in the SEC Tournament semifinals, leaning on 20 points and 12 rebounds from star freshman and leader Brandon Miller. With the 72-61 win, the Tide will now face off against one of Texas A&M or Vanderbilt in the title game, which is set for 1 p.m. ET/Noon CT.
Alabama did not play their best game offensively (still shooting 49% from the field), instead shutting down every Tiger not named D’Moi Hodge. Kobe Brown, who scored 24 points in Friday’s win over Tennessee, was held to just 6 points Saturday against the Tide. That, combined with a rebounding discrepancy that favored Alabama 44-28, was more than enough to win the day.

Miller is now shooting 7-15 from the 3-point line across 2 games in the tournament, a terrifying proposition to either of Texas A&M or Vanderbilt. When Alabama is hitting its shots it’s nearly unbeatable, as it’s athleticism allows it to do so much on the defensive end of the ball.
Now, all that’s left to do is wait to determine who the Tide will be playing Sunday. Alabama is looking to win its 2nd SEC Tournament title in 3 years tomorrow.

Tide’s length was on full display today. Mizzou couldn’t do anything offensively. Great win even with the poor shooting. Playing for another championship!
Yeah, neither team shot well at all in the first half, and Bamas size became that much more evident. It was obvious both teams played a game less than 24 hours prior. Both teams seemed off and didn’t seem to have a high gear today, except Miller.
Miller killed it today.
He had an amazing game! 20 points on 8-11 shooting with 12 rebounds and 4 assists.
Yep, he knows how to kill people!
You’re sure trying hard to get
Your comment to stick… It’s what 4 or 5 attempts now?
If Auburn would have tried that hard on the court this season they may not have been such $h!t…

AU doesn’t allow murderers on their teams, retard.
Bama doesn’t have a murderer on their team either….
They also don’t have a coach with a prior show cause either…
I think Bama will be a 1 seed, no matter the outcome tomorrow.
Bama is already locked in to the #2 overall seed (1 seed in the South region).They could be the #1 overall seed if Kansas loses tonight and Bama beats TAMU tomorrow, but it doesn’t really matter as they’ll be playing in the Louisville region either way.
Yep, AL murders the competition.
Isn’t it just terrible that Bama gets away with so much and nobody can stop them. Good thing you’re on the case though. Weren’t you a Hardy boy? ?
It is a tainted season for Brandon Killer and the Criminal Tide. They will lie, steal, and cheat to win, and now they’ve proven they will also murder. And be proud of it. This is why the nation as a whole despises Bama. It’s not the falsely claimed titles, it’s the delusional, hypocritical fan base and dirty administration.
