The Tigers have had a rough go so far this season, and on top of it, they will be shorthanded due to COVID issues within the program

However, the Crimson Tide has not been able to snag a victory in Columbia since Nate Oats became head coach. 

Alabama is still led in scoring by junior guard Jaden Shackelford, who is averaging 16.3 points per game. For Missouri, forward Kobe Brown leads the team with 14.2 points per game. 

Entering Saturday's game, Alabama averages 82.2 points per game and Missouri averages 66.6. Alabama has made 70 more threes than the Tigers on the year (135-65), but Missouri is allowing just 70.7 points per game compared to Alabama's 72.7. 

The guard play for the Crimson Tide is an advantage in this matchup, as the talented depth in the backcourt gives Alabama an edge over the Tigers. Jahvon Quinerly has led the charge in Alabama's first two SEC contests, with an 18-point performance against Tennessee and a 19-point game in Gainesville. 

With a monumental home game with No. 9 Auburn looming on Tuesday, the Crimson Tide will have to focus to take care of business in Columbia.
