Missouri’s NCAA tourney hopes take a hit with 80-73 loss at Alabama

Missouri had a golden opportunity to claim fourth place for itself in the Southeastern Conference. Instead, the Tigers stubbed their toe Saturday night against an Alabama team in the midst of its worst season since 1970-71. The Tigers, whose NCAA Tournament hopes were dealt a blow with the loss against a Tide team with an RPI of 127, find themselves in gridlock with seven teams tied at 7-7 in fourth place in the SEC standings.
