Adding insult to injury, Mitchell was also fouled on the play and he converted the free throw to give his team the early lead.
However, in spite of the big dunk, which whipped the home crowd into a frenzy, Alabama has rallied to take an 11-7 lead with just over 14 minutes remaining in the 1st half.
The Razorbacks, meanwhile, are hoping to hand the Crimson Tide their 1st SEC loss of the season.
